Changeworks was asked by the City of Edinburgh Council to conduct a short online survey asking Edinburgh flat residents what they thought of their on-street bins for waste and recycling service. The feedback will help the Council identify current barriers to recycling and improve the service. We received over 3000 responses between 21 September and 23 October 2017. We will now conduct a number of focus groups with householders in November 2017 to explore the survey results in more depth. The results will be presented to Edinburgh City Council in January 2018. Read more about the consultation or contact the Waste team for further enquiries.
