My Scarlett is a wall scratcher. I have tall rubbermaid type bins. She will stand on the edge of the bin and scratch the wall. I suspect your cat will also try to bury hairballs, food she doesn't like, etc. You may have what I call "the snitch".
What drives Scarlett to scratch the wall is her need to keep everything tidy in her life. She only does it when I get a little bit lax in cleaning out her litter box. When I keep it totally clean, she doesn't have the need to try to bury the box. Keeping it clean means not only to scoop litter regularly, but to rotate in clean boxes. I keep extra boxes on hand and will give mine clean ones at least every few weeks. I would expect double sided tape to get nasty next to a litter box, as it will absorb the dust from the box and ruin its effectiveness. Or you could move it a little further away from the wall.
