Fall 2010 Waste and Recycling Survey Results are In!

Thank you to the close to 600 people who completed our waste and recycling survey! The results tell us that recycling continues to be important to our residents, and that there is more we can be doing to reduce waste.

The survey results will be combined with the work being done by the Public and Technical Advisory Committees (see below) to look at ways to better manage our waste and recycling for the years to come, while making the best use of our tax dollars. The information and options will be presented at the open houses for more feedback later this year. Click here for a copy of the survey report.
