Proposed Changes to Recycling
City of York Council are looking at making some changes to recycling collections and would like to hear residents’ views on current waste collections and what the council can do to help people recycle even more.
At a time when the focus on improving our environment has never been more important, they want to explore how they can collect recycling in a way that minimises their impact on the environment, improves the service on offer for residents and maximises our opportunity to recycle.
Have your say by completing their short online survey – survey closes 11th May.
