Flytipping and overgrown brushes

Reported via desktop in the General litter category anonymously at 13:52, Mon 20 June 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3609964.

There is a huge amount of flytipped rubbish in the bushes next to the footpath that joins the Bristol to Bath Railway Path from Thicket Avenue (behind 143 Thicket Avenue, BS16 4BQ), including a sofa and shopping trolley. I have witnessed people injecting themselves with drugs at this location and so there will probably be needles as well. With the bushes so overgrown here, I am scared to used this path in case there are people in the bushes accessing what must be a drugs den in eth house on Three Oaks Close. I stopped using this in the dark winter days and now it is midsummer and it has still not been cleaned up this problem it is impacting my walking and cycling in the area. Perhaps the Community Payback team could help tackle this problem?
