Love St Pauls. Bristol Waste Bin Project
Together with Sylvia Vincent we organised art workshops with many of the youth of St Pauls. We all talked about problems and solutions for waste and also how much we love St Pauls. Supported by the Bristol Waste Community Engagement Team we had some fun whilst talking about how we can help to keep our streets clean and how to reduce our own waste.
We were delighted with the outcomes, many young people created thoughtful and well executed drawings which look great on the bins. We hope they will inspire positive actions towards waste and recycling. Deborah Weinreb

"We hope this project adds to the vibrancy of the area and changes the way people think about their waste. If ‘Love St Pauls’ is a success, we hope to replicate it in different areas of Bristol to help improve neighbourhoods across the city.”

The bins were designed in craft workshops which were held at youth groups in St Pauls, with the help of local artist Deborah Weinreb and Sylvia Vincent, Youth and Community worker from Imayla, supported by the Bristol Waste Community Engagement Team. Each workshop encouraged young people to talk about waste, litter and fly-tipping, as well as how to improve the streets of St Pauls.
