Residents invited to give their views on Warwickshire's recycling centres

Leamington Editorial 30th Jan, 2024   0

RESIDENTS are being asked their views on Warwickshire’s recycling centres.

Warwickshire County Council want to know what residents think about the reuse and recycling facilities at the nine centres across the county.

The online survey, which closes on February 4, is asking visitors of the reuse shops about their experience of donating to or buying from the shops. It also seeks views on the running of the recycling facilities and the appointment booking system.

The reuse shops are a treasure trove of preloved goods for the home and garden.

Most of the reuse shops are run by Age UK Coventry and Warwickshire and proceeds go to fund projects in Warwickshire.

Users of Warwickshire’s recycling centres can let the council know what they think to the range of recycling opportunities at the local recycling centres and the signage and tidiness. There are questions about queue times and staff helpfulness.

WCC’s environment spokesperson Coun Heather Timms said: “Councillors are keen to hear the views of residents on our network of reuse shops and recycling centres. These valuable facilities in the community help us to reduce waste and maximise recycling.

“The reuse shops are very popular for donations and for picking up great bargains. The shops sold over 1,000 tonnes of items last year that would have otherwise gone to waste. This helps the environment and reduces carbon impact.

“In a similar survey two years ago, residents told us there was high levels of satisfaction with the facilities and the help from site staff. We want to make sure that we are still getting this important service right and hear suggestions for ways we could improve further.”
