RESIDUAL WASTE ANALYSIS
Over the next two weeks a team from MEL Research will be working in the Teignbridge area on behalf of DCC to conduct a waste audit on residual waste collected from a selection of properties in the District.
As part of a Devon wide initiative, representatives will be removing residual waste from the black bins that are presented at randomly selected properties on their collection day. The householders are not informed that this is happening prior to removal, however the representative will have ID and a pre-printed letter of explanation which will be given to any householder upon request.
The waste analysis will help us understand the composition of the residual waste we collect and inform future communications with householders. It will also help us, and DCC, to shape future Waste Management Strategies.
The waste audits will be carried out in the Newton Abbot area on Thursday 5th October.
