Sheffields Waste Management Survey – A chance to have your say

12 Aug

Sheffield residents are being asked to have their say on potential changes to their waste and recycling services.
Despite saving more than £6 million from the annual waste services budget in the past three years, the council needs to save a further £3.4million by 2017.  Its plan is to increase the amount of recycling across the city and provide a more efficient service, without changing the collection frequency of black bins. Residents are being asked for their views on increasing the variety of plastics collected for recycling, such as yogurt pots and margarine tubs; introducing a second recycling bin in place of blue boxes and changing recycling collection days so that blue bin and box collection days for individual households may not be the same days as black bin days.
To take part in the Sheffield consultation, residents can visit the Sheffield City Council website at https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-business-strategy/future-waste-services/consult_view to complete an online survey from between midnight on 3 August and 15 September. There are two versions of the consultation, one being the main consultation, the other being targeted at residents living in flats. Alternatively, residents can request a paper copy of the consultation by contacting Waste Management on 0114 2037621 or by email: wastemanagement@sheffield.gov.uk
See Council News website for further information.
