A group of Angus College landscaping students has been chosen to take part in a national litter control consultation.

The 20 students will help to inform the strategy of the project which is a joint partnership between Holyrood, Zero Waste Scotland and Young Scot, the youth information group.

All of the chosen students are studying landscape gardening and are part of a 60-strong group of consultees taken from across Scotland.

According to Young Scot representative Lisa Murphy, their views will be vital.

She said: “The strategy will focus on three key areas including enforcement, information and infrastructure and the Government want a snap shot into young people’s views and feelings.

“The students may well find that their comments will appear in the strategy document.”

Angus College learning engagement officer Katie Anderson is keen to see college students taking part in studies like this which will add to their studies.

She added: “We’re always striving to find opportunities to enhance student course work and help them stand out in the work place. This is a great example of this.”
