Local residents have been getting together for an hour of action to tackle litter/ graffiti hotspots. Could you give an hour of your time to help? Get in touch if you can.


BCR NP are building up a collection of equipment such as paint/ litter pickers/ street closure bollards etc and need to find somewhere in our area to store it- do you know of a garage/ store which we could use?

THE BIG GIVE: BHF donation bins.

Following another successful British Heart Foundation donation bin collection in Bristol last year, when 72 tonnes of donated items from students were collected with a value of up to £125,000 during summer 2015 (and a significant reduction in fly tipping and waste sent to landfill sites was recorded) the Big Red Collection Bins have been put out again this year.
If you see side waste/ fly tipped items next to the bins please report them
here for BCC to deal with.
