Bin surveys

Basia Cummings made this Freedom of Information request to Northamptonshire County Council as part of a batch sent to 36 authorities

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

Northamptonshire County Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Northamptonshire County 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?

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.

:: 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

Freedom of Information,

Thank you for your email.


Household waste falls under the jurisdiction of the District and Borough
councils rather than the County Council and so we believe that they will
hold the information you require.
