waste survey results

The results are in from Randwick Council’s survey on waste and two things are clear – people want food waste recycling and they want costs kept low.

The survey was open to all ratepayers and residents to complete between 24 July to 3 September 2019 either via Council’s Your Say website or by returning a hard copy survey included with the July rates notice.

A total of 4,593 responses were received with 93% of respondents indicating they own their own home and 78% of respondents indicating they have lived in Randwick City for more than 10 years.

The purpose of the survey was to help Council understand resident attitudes and expectations about waste collection services to inform the scope of a new contract for collection services.

Council plans to issue the tender in 2019 and appoint a waste collection contractor in 2020. The new waste services contract is likely to commence in late 2020 or early 2021, due to the lead-in time required to purchase trucks and arrange staff.
