Our efforts in Argyll
From March 2019 until February 2020, we have had two Marine Litter Officers, based in Oban, who have been working with local businesses, groups and boat owners to co-ordinate a targeted clean-up of the north Argyll coast. Their aim is to find solutions to removing larger items that may need specialist equipment for uplift and finding ways to reach areas of coast that are inaccessible by conventional methods. The SCRAPbook map also highlighted litter in lower intensities at other locations, which can be more easily accessed.
Thank you to Marine Scotland, Sea Solutions Argyll, and Argyll and Bute Council for their invaluable support.
"The map has already been used to clean up parts of the coast that haven’t been noticed before and it’s amazing to see so many people using the map and thinking of inventive ways to approach cleaning up our coast."
