Dunna Chuck Bruck


Originally launched in 1986, Dunna Chuck Bruck is Shetland's overarching environmental awareness initiative. The areas targeted under the original campaign were redundant vehicles and agricultural scrap, and the bruck which blighted ourshores following the winter storms. This was successfully reduced through initiatives such as Da Voar Redd Up, and the Trust's service to uplift redundant vehicles and machinery free of charge.

Dunna Chuck Bruck was re-launched in 2012 following requests from many community groups and local organisations. If you have any suggestions on areas which require actionor ideas on Local Support Local SupportZoomhow Shetland can tackle its current litter and environmental issues please contact us. We are particularly interested to hear from communities which would like assistance to enable them to carry out environmental projects

To keep up to date with the many local and national environmental initiatives check out the Dunna Chuck Bruck Facebook page.
