The Community Engagement Team aims to work in partnership with 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 is split across the city of Bristol and works locally with groups and individuals to help solve their waste issues and 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.
Have a general question for the whole team? Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 0117 304 9022
