Flyspotting in Leith

Changeworks funds a project called Zero Waste Leith, co-funded by The Scottish Government through Zero Waste Scotland and the European Regional Development Fund.

When Changeworks wanted to help locals to reduce flytipping, it chose to use the cult appeal of the movie Trainspotting to persuade people not to ditch furniture or put up with others turning their neighbourhood into a tip.

In a nod to the film, which is famously set in Leith, they urged people to choose something else: Flyspotting - a new word, defined as meaning to be on the lookout for flytippers and flytipping in Leith.

The 'Flyspotting in Leith' case study highlights our partners' work, as part of Scotland’s National Litter Strategy.
