SYCF Vital Signs Survey

13 Jul

We want to give our communities a voice!

South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation (SYCF) is currently conducting a community consultation which will form a part of our second annual Vital Signs Report. Vital signs is a way of presenting a picture of an area using local statistics combined with the views of the people who live there. The results will help us give grants that are better targeted, and inform the work of other local agencies.

Completing this survey will take around 5 minutes.

Improvements to your bin collections

13 Jul

Coming soon – your new brown bin

We are making changes to improve your recycling service and in the next few weeks you will receive a new brown bin.  These changes will make it easier for you to recycle, and save money for the city.

How will your new recycling service work?

  • Week 1 black bin
  • Week 2 brown bin (glass bottles and jars, plastic bottles and cans)
  • Week 3 black bin
  • Week 4 blue bin (paper and card)

When will your new service start?

If you live in the north of Sheffield you will receive your new brown bins in August or September.

If you live in the south of Sheffield you will receive your new brown bin in September or October

When we deliver your brown bin, we will put a leaflet with your new collection calendar through your letterbox.

What do I need to do now?

Please keep using your blue bin and blue box as normal.

We will put a sticker on your blue bin when it is time for you to start using your blue bin for paper and card and your brown bin for glass, cans and plastic bottles.

Look out for a leaflet explaining the changes which will be delivered through your letterbox next week.

You can find more information on the Sheffield City Council and Veolia websites

One in ten homes asked to complete new housing survey

13 Jul

Almost one in ten Sheffield households are being asked to complete a survey to help better understand individual residents’ situations and their future requirements.

The Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR) at Sheffield Hallam University is carrying out the survey.  It has written to around 24,000 households asking them to complete the survey online or request a paper version.

Three prizes of £100 shopping vouchers are up for grabs for those completing the survey.

Councillor Jim Steinke, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety at Sheffield City Council said: “We use information about people’s current housing situation, and their plans for the future to develop housing plans and policies that meet the needs of all residents, so it’s really important that people complete the survey.

“I’d like to thank everyone in advance for their help with this.”

Letters will land on people’s doorsteps from Tuesday 10 July and the survey closes on 30 July.
