Why is Waste Management in Bristol important?
Bristol is a city of many accolades, being a popular UK destination with a diverse community, scenic landscapes and progressive spirit. Commercial enterprises flock around the two universities and many cultural venues, including theatres, live music scenes and galleries. The city is host to many annual events, like St Pauls Carnival and Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, which tend to leave the streets littered with rubbish.
Businesses of Bristol suffer with the aftermath of waste and should ensure their disposal methods are legal, ethical and economical all at the same time. In 2015, Bristol received EU's European Green Capital Award, sparking strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of Bristol businesses.
Since becoming Green Capital, Bristol has shown many sustainable initiatives. 2018 saw the opening of two “zero waste” shops in Bristol, offering alternatives to single-use plastics and reducing the need for wasteful packaging. Then there are organisations like “Incredible Edible Bristol”, a sustainable food growing movement, and The Bristol Skipchen, a campaign aiming to cut food wastage.
However, in recycling league tables Bristol City Council sits at 43.4% – a mid-range rate that fails to compete with the high-recyclers of the country. Bristol City Council’s Waste and Resource Management has visions and objectives in place to make the city greener – that’s where we come in.
