Community Composting Survey

November 15, 2017  |  Community Events, News  |  Comments Off on Community Composting Survey

The Healthy Community Society of the North Slocan Valley is looking into the possibility of community composting. As part of our study we need to know about your composting habits, needs and desires and what barriers you currently find with the process. Organic waste creates, on average, 40% of the public waste stream and yet, if diverted from the landfill, can make a valuable product.  One survey per household is adequate.  The Healthy Community Society appreciates your feedback!  Deadline for submission is December 6th, 2017.

The link to the online survey can be found:  Community Compost Survey

If a paper copy is preferred, please download it here: Compost Survey Questions Final

Paper copies may be picked up at the Village of New Denver office.
