Businesses large and small in Argyll are getting behind a new campaign to minimise the effect of staycation tourism on littering.

The campaign, designed by The GRAB Trust and Argyll and Bute Council with support from Keep Scotland Beautiful, will provide information, advice and guidance to help ensure residents and visitors dispose of their litter responsibly this summer.

Cafés, restaurants and takeaways will be adding to the campaign by raising awareness to their customers with stickers with eye-catching Keep Scotland Beautiful designs on drinks’ cups, hot food take-away and sandwich wrappers.

The small stickers are available from The GRAB Trust free – while stocks last – to any business that would like to join the campaign and encourage people to dispose of litter responsibly.

The campaign message will also be seen on till and counter displays, Argyll and Bute Council litter bins and on social media.

Public access litter-picking stations will be available at high footfall areas and litter picking equipment is being made freely available for organised groups to borrow at collection points hosted by liveArgyll.

The GRAB Trust is co-ordinating litter picks with community groups and will encourage communities to get involved.

To get the free stickers, till or counter displays, posters and the staycation campaign on a roll contact The GRAB Trust at lapickers@grab.org.uk or order resources directly at https://forms.gle/NrNoJGsdXhfyvXSR9
