Have your say on recycling and waste services

The Isle of Wight Council, in partnership with Amey, is giving residents a chance to air their views on recycling and waste services, via an online survey.

The survey, which is now open and will run until Friday January 4, 2019, is an opportunity for householders to put forward suggestions for future improvements or ideas on how the Island can recycle more, and reduce our waste.

Your feedback can be completed online at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9Z5GBTY

Paper versions are also available from County Hall reception area, libraries and council help centres.

“I would urge to public to have their say in the survey as we are always open to hearing ideas on how we can all continue to recycle more and reduce our waste,” said Councillor Michael Murwill.

“We’re already recycling 55 per cent – which was originally our target for 2020 and we’re continuing to tackle issues such as plastic pollution.  Thanks to Island residents, recycling has now become part of our daily lives.”

The council is responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of household recyclables and waste on the Island – which is delivered through a contract with Amey.

Once the closing date for the survey has passed, the information will be reviewed and used to identify possible improvements to the existing services.
