Parkes Shire Council’s waste education team will be coordinating a community survey to assess the community’s usage and satisfaction with the kerbside recycling, food and garden waste and general waste bin service.
The survey is being conducted on behalf of the Netwaste group of 27 councils and will include a targeted telephone survey and a short online survey open to all residents to participate in.
The telephone survey started on 2nd November and will be undertaken over three weeks.
The online community survey can be accessed via council’s website www.parkes.nsw.gov.au and will be open until Sunday, 29th November.
“Waste management is a growing issue and cost for Parkes Shire Council. More waste than ever is being produced and the traditional means of landfilling is becoming increasingly regulated and expensive to administer, so it is imperative we continue to innovate and ensure our services are meeting the demands of the community,” said Waste Facilities Committee Chair, Cr Alan Ward.
“We encourage all residents to participate in the online survey and those that may be contacted for the phone survey; we encourage your open and honest feedback so that informed decisions and actions be taken in the future.”
