Another garbage poll

And this one counts!

The village is asking residents to complete a 16-question Garbage Service Survey online, or to stop by Village Hall, 801 Burlington Ave., Public Works, 5101 Walnut Ave. or the library, 1050 Curtiss St., for a paper copy. The village says the survey takes about seven minutes, but most will probably be able to dispense with it in half that time.

“The results of the survey will be presented in a report to the Village Council and will be used to help determine customer preferences regarding garbage services,” the village Web site states.

The survey will be available for about a month.

As for last month’s DGreport poll on preferences for local garbage collection, a third of respondents favored a toter for recyclables and half wanted a choice of stickers or toters for garbage. The current 18-gallon recycling bins were favored by only two of 74 respondents.

    One thing about the poll. It asked if you wanted to keep Amnesty Day, but it didn’t ask for a preference for a spring or fall day.

    It seems to me that a spring day would work better, since I wind up doing a lot more cleaning in the spring than in late summer/early fall.

    In the past, I’ve been told by village offiicials that residents prefer a fall Amnesty Day, but it will be interesting to see if this survey shows any change in that preference.

    I agree that it should be in Spring. Last year the police didn’t let anyone pick thru the piles either – that’s part of the fun and “greener” then letting everything go off to a landfill.
