Groups urged to apply for funding to prevent fly-tipping in Clydesdale in Clydesdale

COMMUNITY groups in Clydesdale are being urged to apply to a £100,000 grant pot which has been launched by Zero Waste Scotland to help local people tackle the litter and fly-tipping which blights their neighbourhoods.

The Litter and Fly-Tipping Community Action Fund will help new and innovative projects across Scotland.

And, with 96 per cent of Scottish adults agreeing that littering is unacceptable, it will help people to take real action.

The fund is being delivered by Zero Waste Scotland, as part of the Scottish Government’s national litter strategy, Towards A Litter-Free Scotland.

Constituted groups experiencing the persistent problems of littering and fly-tipping are being encouraged to apply for grants of between £500 and £10,000; applications can be submitted until September 19.
