Help us waste less

Ahead of launching a ‘Waste Less’ campaign, aimed at reducing the amount of rubbish that ends up in landfill, Lichfield District Council is asking locals what stops them from recycling more.

As part of the Waste Less questionnaire, Lichfield District Council is asking local residents about their thoughts around recycling and their attitude to waste.

It’s an opportunity to tell the council how much you recycle, what stops you from recycling more, whether plastic waste worries you, and how you think we could encourage you to recycle more, and use fewer single use plastic and disposable products.

Councillor David Leytham, Cabinet Member for Operational Services, Leisure & Waste, said:

“As a district we recycle and compost more than half of the waste we collect from local homes. However, we know there is more to be done and we want to understand why our residents may not be recycling as much as they could. Getting local views will help us to shape our Waste Less campaign, which we’re hoping will see our recycling rates rise in the long-term.”

Please fill in the Waste Less questionnaire by Monday 10 September 2018.

“Waste is everyone’s problem and we all have a role to play, so please do tell us your views by filling in the quick questionnaire. Thank you,” added Cllr Leytham.
