Learning for Sustainability in Falkirk

Introducing our Litter and Waste Education Enforcement Officer


Ella Gorman is our Falkirk Council Waste Services and Litter Education Enforcement Officer. She can support learning about litter and its impact on our communities for Primary and Secondary schools. This includes lessons on litter, recycling and overall waste reduction (virtually or in person when possible). Ella has currently worked with 10 primary schools and 2 high schools to create their Litter Prevention Action Plan and to support local litter picks. Ella has compiled the following information about how she can help and she can be reached via this link.


Say no to litter!
Litter is dangerous, disgusting and damages our Falkirk communities. The environment is something we need to take care of and keeping Falkirk clean and tidy has never been more of a priority.

Falkirk Council has a 5 year Litter Strategy and Litter Prevention Action Plan to support recycling, litter and waste reduction (click here to view). It outlines the steps we want to take to encourage a joint responsibility over Falkirk’s streets, towns and green spaces so that everyone can enjoy their local environment. Litter ruins the environment and our local communities, and we want to work with schools, businesses, community groups, landowners and individuals to take pride in their communities and keep Falkirk litter free.

Waste Services are currently working with schools to spread the slogans ‘bin it’ and ‘take litter home’. By supporting the creation of artwork, giving litter presentations and helping to organise litter picks we encourage pupils across Falkirk to respect and value the environment and their local community.
