In 2016/17 the UK spent a whopping £57 million clearing up after fly-tipping. For the past year, Hubbub has been working the local community in Oldham (a town in Greater Manchester) to try and understand the causes of fly-tipping and come up with solutions.

We worked with the residents of five streets to transform the fly-tipped alleys at the back of their houses into bright and friendly communal spaces. Read more about the results from these trials in this blog

Transform your alleyway

We've compiled a range of the most effective resources trialled in Oldham to help other communities organise their neighbours and transform an alley. The guide below has tips, advice and DIY instructions for people who want to give it a go.



To support the guide we've put together a pack of resources such as flyers, invitations, signs, and other things to help you get your project off the ground. Email [email protected] to get yours.
