Fairfax County, Va. will be conducting a survey where residents will sound off on how well their trash service is doing on education.

Ahead of Fairfax County’s Fairfax Recycle Day, happening on November 15, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services for the county will survey residents about whether their local waste hauler is sharing educational materials on recycling. The survey will be conducted throughout the month of October.

“The survey takes about two minutes to complete and includes inquiries such as the type of information received and how often,” DPWES said in a news release earlier this week. “The goal is to receive data that will provide a clearer picture of the countywide recycling services of County and private collectors.”

The Department developed the survey as a part of a Four Touch Points initiative, which began on January 1. This initiative requires trash collectors to provide their customers with information about waste reduction and recycling. The act of providing education is required for haulers to be licensed to operate in Fairfax County.
