3. Which of the IT systems below do you use for the management of day to day municipal bin collections:
a. Yotta

g. Core (Suez)
h. Webaspx
i. Microsoft Excel or similar
j. No IT system
k. Other: [please name]

4. When is your current contract for the IT system OR outsourced waste contract for waste collections management due to expire?
