We’re a group of residents in St Pauls who have documented years of terrible fly-tipping and out-of-control bin overflow – rotting waste strewn around, furniture left on the pavement… now, we’ve come together as a campaign group- Better Streets- St Pauls, to put on a photography exhibition of the problem, demonstrating the council’s lack of action – and the venue is literally inside City Hall!! We’ll have irony, humour and mesmerising images of the crisis, and we’ll share and amplify the voices of our neighbours affected by it.

Check it out:

Better Streets – St Pauls is a group of St Pauls residents campaigning for Better Streets in our local community. We will no longer accept or tolerate overflowing bins, uncollected waste, and the epidemic of fly-tipping on our pavements.

We’re launching a campaign for adequate waste collection systems in St Pauls, via a photography and installation exhibition. If City Hall won’t come to us, we will go to City Hall!

We’ll have a mapping exercise for problem areas and an opportunity for stakeholders and residents to sign up to stay tuned into meetings & actions post-exhibition (for a street-by-street analysis to arrive at a better, cleaner St Pauls).

See what our local residents have to say, and some of the imagery (though it’s *nothing* compared to the exhibition photos) in this coverage from The Bristol Cable: St Paul’s residents call for action on ‘upsetting and depressing’ fly‑tipping in their neighbourhood:
