Bin surveys

Basia Cummings made this Freedom of Information request to Thanet District Council as part of a batch sent to 15 authorities

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

We're waiting for Basia Cummings to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Thanet District 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

Dear Ms Cummings

Thank you for your reminder. Unfortunately your original request was sent
to an officer for a response. He left the organisation without passing your
request on to his replacement.
I am now chasing a response.

I apologise again for this oversight.

Regards

Information Governance Officer
