Bin surveys

Basia Cummings made this Freedom of Information request to Enfield Council as part of a batch sent to 33 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Enfield Council,

I would like to know whether the Authority has carried out any form of bin survey over the past five years.

Can the Authority provide the number of bin surveys it has conducted in each calendar year since 2014?
If applicable, can the Authority also provide the number of households subject to bin surveys in the same period?
And a brief description of the survey, for example, which types of household waste or bins were surveyed, or what the project was called.

For clarity, a bin survey is used to identify the types of rubbish being thrown away by households or which bins are being used, or both. This may be known as a "compositional analysis".

:: I would like to receive data in an Excel file format.
:: I would appreciate the Authority providing any assistance to me regarding my request, if appropriate and as per relevant legislation.

Yours faithfully,

Basia Cummings
