A cleaner greener Easton

Easton has a significant widespread littering and fly-tipping problem which is unsightly and unhygienic. I'd like to call on our MP Thangham Debbonaire to request that BCC increase street cleaning operations immediately.

Why is this important?

There are structural unacceptable levels of street littering and fly-tipping in Easton, with overflowing bins, ripped open bin bags, rubbish spread around residential and shopping streets, and fly-tipping of household goods. This attracts vermin such as seagulls, foxes, rats and flies, particularly in the warmer months. Please can you liaise with BCC cleansing department to significantly increase the levels of street cleaning weekly, and ask Enforcement Officers to raise awareness and target those businesses and households who are structurally causing this problem to improve the situation for all residents of Easton.

Easton is an amazingly vibrant and diverse area of Bristol, however the state of our streets makes the public environment unsightly and unhygienic, and detrimental to the mental and physical wellbeing of all residents - no other residential area of Bristol is as densely populated or as litter-strewn as this, so the residents of Easton urgently need higher levels of service from BCC's Cleansing Department in order to establish and maintain pleasant, clean and hygienic streets and parks for all residents, young and old, to enjoy and benefit from.
