Newly-formed litter clean-up group to focus on local ‘grotspots’

Ralph Coutts of Angus Litter Through The Lens

Angus businesses that fail to clean up now risk being named and shamed by anti-litter campaigners.

A newly-formed pressure group will be targeting “grotspots” to highlight the litter, flytipping and dog fouling that is blighting the county.

Angus Litter Through The Lens will also be out in force to highlight businesses that don’t take their responsibilities seriously.

Organiser Ralph Coutts said: “I’ve always believed a photo has more gravity than words alone.

“I recently took my camera out and walked within a mile-and-a-half of my house in St Vigeans and had my head in my hands at the amount of litter around local businesses.

“I wanted to reach out to other litter groups in Angus to bring like-minded folk together to bring change about through the use of photography.”

Mr Coutts said the group will post useful apps and links to Angus Council’s Accessline and wants to work towards finding shared solutions to the problem.
