Service update: 19 July 2021

We are experiencing a staff shortage due to covid-19 and the national driver shortage. To allow us to maintain essential waste and recycling services, all garden waste collections, including garden sacks, are suspended until mid-September. Subscribers to the service have been contacted with the options available to them. Where possible, we encourage residents to compost their garden waste at home. You can find tips here.

We are working hard to address the situation and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through the issue. Please try to avoid putting extra strain on our services at this time.

Hartcliffe’s Big Tidy

Hartcliffe's Big Tidy

The Big Tidy is back, and this time it is hoping to turn litterbugs in to love bugs! Our specialist crew of street cleansers, parks officers, graffiti removal experts and community engagement start work in Hartcliffe on Monday 15 February 2021 to bring the sparkle back to 18 locations in the area.

On their task list will be cutting back overgrown greenery, cleaning paths and communal areas, clearing litter, fly-tipping and dog mess and working with the community to help them love where they live.

The four-month-long project is part of Mayor Marvin Rees’s Big Tidy campaign which launched in October 2019 as a city-wide initiative. The team will be working in partnership with Bristol City Council Housing department.

Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees said;

The Big Tidy will bring together teams from housing, waste and parks to really address the issues that matter to the community. Everyone deserves to love where they live and have pride in their neighbourhood, so we’re here to bring some of that sparkle back.

We’d love to hear from anyone who lives in Hartcliffe or has previously lived in the area. We want to know the spots you’d like to see cleared up, but also what you love about your neck of the woods or what your happy memories are from your time there. Did you have your first kiss in Hartcliffe? Was it here you first got the keys to your own front door?
