Annual customer satisfaction survey

Annual recycling and waste survey 2022

Every year, with our waste partners, we run a residents recycling and waste customer satisfaction survey.

The Isle of Wight Council handles the collection, treatment and disposal of household recyclables and waste on the Island. This is delivered through a contract with our waste providers.

The survey is your chance to give us feedback, ideas and suggestions on how we could improve our recycling and waste services.

We know you are up to the challenge of reducing your waste and we would like to thank you for your efforts so far.

Once the survey finishes each year, we use the results to review and look at possible improvements to the existing services.

We will tell you about the survey findings.

Keep an eye out in local media, our news section, local libraries and our social media for when the next one starts and how you can take part.
