Last day to respond to rubbish and recycling survey

Exeter City Council want feedback on services.

The City Council says it recycles 30% of all waste collected in the city, but other authorities in the region have a recycling rate of over 50%.

Despite this, the authority says the city’s total waste produced per head is the fourth lowest in England outside of London. The Council’s Materials Reclamation Facility is also sorting plastic from other authorities.

Recycling brings in upwards of £1million for public services in the city, which the council says is essential because of central government funding cuts.  

The survey asks about people's priorities for kerbside recycling like glass and tetra paks, as well as current recycling habits.

The deadline for the survey has been extended and closes at midnight tonight (Wednesday 15th May). Find it here
