Flytipping small grant scheme

Is flytipping blighting your land? Do you need some help to remove the waste and dispose of it properly, or to prevent it happening again? If so support may soon be available. Zero Waste Scotland has launched a flytipping grant scheme which will allow landowners and managers to apply for small grants to help clear their land of flytipped material and create long-term, innovative deterrents to flytipping.

Any land owner or manager in Scotland who has experienced problems with flytipping on the land for which they are responsible, and can provide evidence of the problem, will be eligible to apply for a small grant of between £500 and £10,000, from the pot of £50,000.

Details of who can apply, what the grant can be spent on, and an application pack are available now on the Dumb Dumpers website. For more information, contact the litter and flytipping team at Keep Scotland Beautiful, who administer the grant scheme on behalf of Zero Waste Scotland, at flytipping@ksbscotland.org.uk or on 01786 468 788/243.

They Scared Up Some Litter in Old Gala Park

 

 

A PICTURE'S WORTH 1000 WORDS
. . .or over 400 bags of litter in one year!



Community Green Initiative began with a poster on the local post office notice board in January 2008:

ARE YOU FED UP WITH LITTER?

IF SO PLEASE COME TO A PUBLIC BRAINSTORMING MEETING!

Forty people came to the meeting, did a lot of venting and then signed up to get to work. By June 2008 we were an officially constituted group but already had several litter picks under our belts from back in 2007. We now hold two big annual clean ups - one in April and one in Autumn - plus assorted smaller litter picks along the way.

We are on hand to help clean up any area of Dunipace and Denny, to help other groups and neighbourhoods set up their own litter events, to liaise with the council on equipment, publicity, volunteers, uplifts for local litter events.

We have received grants to do bigger clean ups - like the one from SEPA to hire Aquaklenz to clean out 10 tonnes of fly tipping from one mile of the River Carron!


We also set up educational booths at local games and fairs and help set up clean-up programmes for them. Our litter work is entirely volunteer, with a goal of making Dunipace & Denny a Litter Free Zone...eventually! Meanwhile, here is a wee photo gallery to give you an idea of the work we do and the fun we have...it's a family thing!
