ISLANDERS INVITED TO HAVE THEIR SAY ON WASTE AND RECYCLING SERVICE

Island residents are being asked to provide their views and ideas on how the Island can recycle more and reduce its waste as part of the annual residents’ waste and recycling survey.

The Isle of Wight Council survey is accepting responses until Friday 14th January.

The Council is responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of household recyclables and waste on the Island — which is delivered through a contract with Amey.

Cabinet lead for environment, heritage and waste, Councillor Jonathan Bacon, said:

“We are already in the top 25 of Local Authorities in England for our recycling rate of 55.7 per cent and we are keen to improve this even further next year, with your help.

“Residents have already shown that they are up for the challenge of reducing their waste and I would like to thank everyone for their efforts so far. This survey is your chance to give us ideas and suggestions on how we could improve our waste and recycling services more so we’d really like to hear from you.”

Natasha Dix, strategic manager for contracts, waste and environment, said:

“I would also like to thank our residents for joining the recycling journey with us.

“Once the survey has finished, we’ll use the results to review and look at possible improvements to the existing services. So it’s more important than ever that you make sure you have your say in good time.”
