Everyone creates trash, but Larimer County, area cities want to know how you feel about it

A short survey to gather information about how Larimer County residents feel about and deal with their household trash has been launched. A Regional Wasteshed Coalition, made up of elected officials and staff from the cities of Fort Collins, Loveland and Estes Park and the county is seeking help from residents to address the future of solid waste management.

To take the short survey, visit http://colostate.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_23ruT4v7Ih6YedT.

The survey takes 5-7 minutes to complete and is also available in Spanish. Questions focus on how respondents dispose of garbage, recyclables, food scraps and yard trimmings at home, but also enquire about attitudes and motivations.

The survey will be available online until the end of July. The results will be incorporated into a series of facilitated public forums, scheduled around the county in September. A follow-up survey is likely in early 2017.
