Love Your Street
Hull City Council is undertaking an environmental standards improvement project within priority streets within the city. This exciting new project will be called ‘Love Your Street’ and will involve residents, landlords, community groups, university students, and other stakeholders all working together to make a visible difference to their communities.
They have established baseline data for their priority wards around the city, and are in the process of contacting different landlords, resident groups, student groups, and community organisations around Hull to start working with them. They are wanting to get to the root cause of different waste issues, and use measures to counteract them. This would include listening to resident priorities and planning action days.
They believe that this would make Hull a better place to live, and can only be done if they work together with the communities.
What they want to do
The wards that they will be working in within Hull are;
As a part of this project they will undertake actions around the city, to assist residents and tenants in knowing how to manage their waste effectively. Some of the various actions that they will be doing are listed below;
These methods have been chosen to allow them to talk to residents at their homes, as this is more convenient. They will be able to stress the importance of recycling, and the advantages and disadvantages of not managing waste effectively. They will be able to listen to the complaints and concerns of the local population, and provide advice or offer actions to overcome them. As well as this, they will be able to provide real world examples of what can and cannot be recycled, and show just how easy recycling actually is. In addition to this, by being visible in the area and collecting litter, they aim to have a trickle effect and encourage local residents to have pride in the community and make it a nicer place to live. By providing support, they will ensure that residents are constantly aware of what they can do, feel a part of a wider team, and be more empowered. By working with community groups and schools, they would work with children and promote positive actions that they would take with them through to adulthood.
What they need from YOU
Work with them to improve the environmental standard of your area
They need you to report to them.
When you see something bad, say something.
It is only by reporting issues that they will be able to get a full picture of what is happening in regards to the environment. By doing this they can find out which areas of Hull have the biggest issues and then educate the residents on how to manage their waste. By doing this they would solve the current problems and help residents not have the same issues in the future.
The launch of the project will be mid-September 2018.
