The Community Engagement team run projects in Bristol's communities to show that if we all recycle more and throw away less, it’s better for our wellbeing, our pockets, the environment and our city as a whole.

The team works with local groups and individuals to help solve their waste issues and run specailised projects to improve their street scene.

If Bristol residents have any ideas or initiatives for improving how Bristol Waste Company serves the city then the Community Engagement team are ready to listen and help out wherever possible.

Bristol Waste Community Engagement Officer Ewan



Ewan Doswell - Bristol Clean Streets

I studied Environmental Science and worked as a landfill engineer, Waste Management Officer and cooperated on projects in Mexico and Malawi. I love working for a forward-thinking organisation that is so rooted in this wonderful city and is key to helping residents lighten their impact on our overburdened world. I coordinate the Clean Streets Forum and Clean Streets Education and Awareness Group.


Bristol Waste Community Engagement Officer Gemma



Gemma Annan - Schools

Before joining the Bristol Waste Company team, I worked in waste education for 3 years in Wiltshire. I especially liked BWC for its fun, engaging and successful campaigns and knew I wanted a piece of that action! Bristol offers new challenges - I have been working on a Waste Nothing Schools Project, which I am excited to launch later this year as I believe it will have a positive impact across the city.


Bristol Waste Community Engagement Officer Guillaume



Guillaume Minot - University students

I am currently coordinating distributing litter picking kits to volunteers who are doing an amazing job in keeping our city clean and friendly to the local wildlife. I am also in contact with the universities of Bristol to support their environmental initiatives. It’s never easy to address the vastly different needs of the different communities in Bristol, but it’s a challenge worth our time.


Bristol Waste Community Engagement Officer Fritha



Fritha Voaden - Clean Streets Big Tidy

I’ve always enjoyed supporting people to improve their quality of life and joined Bristol Waste after spending several years working as a Physiotherapy Technician. I have keen interest in sustainability and Bristol Waste’s vision for Bristol and commitment to working with communities is what really attracted me to the company.



Bristol Waste Community Engagement Officer Hanna  

Hanna Johnson - Clean Streets Big Tidy

I’ve previously been a Community Development Worker for a Housing Association and most recently in a role which aimed to improve communities’ access to Mental Health Services in North Bristol. Working for an organisation like Bristol Waste presents an opportunity to influence large-scale behaviour change and contribute to Bristol’s growing reputation as a leading innovator for sustainable living.
