We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Clean Up Aberdeen

Clean Up Aberdeen is part of Keep Scotland Beautiful's national mass-engagement campaign Clean Up Scotland. Clean Up Scotland aims to involve one million people in action against litter and mess. It is a national coalition of organisations and people from all places and back grounds who want Scotland to shine. The campaign is working to change long term behaviour by making dropping litter as socially unacceptable as drink driving is today.

Litter picking clean ups are a great way of bringing people together. Young and old alike can roll up their sleeves together to show that they care about their neighbourhood. Everyone can take part from individuals to schools, community groups and businesses.

Clean Ups are great fun and make a noticeable difference to areas. Environmental Services can lend you litter picking tongs, high viz vests, gloves and black bags and will uplift the collected rubbish. All you have to do is pick and bag the litter.
