Have Your Say Waste Behaviours - Community Sentiment Survey
In the Townsville Local Government Area, most residents receive a red bin for general waste and a yellow bin for recycling.
Recent data has shown that:
19% of the items in the yellow recycling bin cannot be recycled and have been added incorrectly.
21% of the items in the red general waste bins could have been recycled if they were put in the yellow bin.
Council is looking for the best way to fix these problems so that the right items end up in the right bin.
How can you get involved?
Council invites all valued Have Your Say participants, residents and the broader community to participate in the Waste Behaviours - Community Sentiment Survey found below to help identify trends in waste behaviour and identify potential solutions.
Your input will go towards shaping future waste and recycling decision-making in our city as we work towards our goal of becoming a circular economy.
To participate, visit https://haveyoursay.townsville.qld.gov.au/waste-behaviours and submit your feedback by the closing date on Monday 22 September, 2022.
