Bins Out campaign drives recycling awareness to Bristol student tenants

At City Rental Services we’ve seen a month-long Bins Out campaign in action from Bristol City Council working in partnership with the University of West of England and Bristol University and Police Community Support officers, to raise awareness amongst student tenant households in Bristol.


The aim of the Bins Out campaign is to highlight the need for student tenants across the City to be good neighbours, and to recycle household waste wherever possible.

Full story details on the Bins Out campaign can be seen here.

There’s also a responsibility with landlords in Bristol, to educate their tenants on waste management.

If you have new tenants in rented properties and student accommodation in Bristol, don’t forget to remind them about the waste and recycling services available in Bristol.

A green wheelie bin is also useful, but there is an associated cost: another option can be a visit to a local tip, but this also incurs commercial waste costs in some instances. Ultimately, waste management and recycling matter.

Bristol landlords – where are you with your property to let in Bristol?

At City Rental Services September is a month where there’s often a shortage of flats and houses to rent in Bristol for student accommodation, with the large number of student tenants starting college and University courses in the city.


Whether you own a student property in Bristol, or a one-bedroom or two-bedroom flat or house for professional letting, there’s never a better time to bring it to the market. Bristol landlords can benefit from the current rented property shortage – with the right professional help, of course.

We’re finding that the majority of student rented properties and professional lettings are all taken, with many students staying on in the city to work and live after graduation.

At the moment, we only have a couple of rented properties left on our books after an incredibly busy Summer and fresh start to the new academic year.

We’ve noticed increased visits to our website in recent weeks, with more potential student tenants looking for properties to rent in Bristol.

Landlords, if you have any properties left to rent and are struggling to find decent student tenants and professional tenants, come in and see us at our Gloucester Road offices. We’ll help you to get it let in September.

Helping student tenants find their perfect property in Bristol

At City Rental Services, working with student tenants to find their perfect rented properties in Bristol forms a large part of what we do as a lettings agency.

And this becomes even more important as we approach August, the time of year when students going through the UCAS clearing system are looking for last-minute availability on rented properties across the city.

It can be a difficult task for them, too, with student Halls already full. Most student tenants in this difficult position will go online to try and find suitable rented accommodation in Bristol, which can be stressful – even before they’ve arrived to start their studying and a new life in Bristol.

This is where we can help.

At City Rental Services, we’re happy to rent room-by-room for student tenants as required, and we try to match college courses and interests with our shared student accommodation where possible in Bristol.

We specialise in providing late student placement in rented property, and this can be especially important for foreign students coming to Bristol and looking for last-minute accommodation in the city.

It’s crucial to remember that good quality rented property is a fundamental part of a student’s college life, and we believe that student tenants should be well cared-for by their letting agent.

After all, the first three months at college from October to December are when many students will make friends for life. Their accommodation helps this to happen in our experience, and of course happy tenants makes us happy, too!
