The pile featured in the visuals represents the 3,700 metric tonnes of litter removed from the streets of Bristol last year.

This waste is the sum of everything collected by the Bristol Waste street cleansing team from streets. It does not includes litter which, for various reasons, we’re unable to collect (typical examples might be private land, river banks, roadsides etc). It does not include any fly-tipped waste or residual waste from citizens’ homes.
