Almost 1300 residents have had their say on waste and recycling!
Release date: 23 July 2018
Cotswold District Council has reported that 1290 residents responded to an online waste and recycling survey that sought suggestions about the future direction of the waste/recycling service across the District and also the County as a whole.
Cllr Sue Coakley, CDC Cabinet Member for Environment, was delighted with the response rate:
“It’s great that almost 1300 residents found time to complete the survey this shows the importance they attach to improving our kerbside waste and recycling services in line with the needs of users across the District. The customer feedback about the current kerbside service and suggestions for improvement will be of immense value in devising new ways to deliver the service. The overall aim is to reduce the amount of residual waste and increase recycling, and this will also help us keep down the cost of Council tax.
“Our service provider Ubico Ltd needs to replace its existing fleet of kerbside collection vehicles during 2019 as the current ones will be at the end of their service life. Improvements in technology should mean that the new vehicles will offer smarter and more efficient ways of collecting recycling, and the comments we have collected from residents will help us maximise the benefits of these advances.”
