Litter and dumping survey invitation
People across much of western Victoria including the Wimmera can put forward their thoughts on litter and illegal dumping of rubbish.
Grampians Central West Waste and Resource Recovery Group is preparing a regional litter plan for the ‘Grampians Central West’ region and is inviting people to participate in a survey.
Executive officer La Vergne Lehmann said the survey would seek out people’s views, concerns and priorities surrounding litter. “We have done a lot of work to identify a range of problematic areas across the region including the Western Highway, wayside stops, parks and recreation areas and bushland,” she said.
“But we also know the community and community groups need to have a say in how we look to tackle the problem of litter and illegal dumping in the region.”
Survey results will go towards the Regional Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan that will include a range of ways to tackle the ‘top five identified priorities’ in the region.
People will have until midnight August 5 to complete the online survey.
Ms Lehmann said the survey took about 15 minutes to complete, was confidential and anonymous and individual responses would be subject to collation and analysis as group data.
She said as an incentive, participants could provide their email address, kept separate from survey responses, to enter a draw to win one of four $50 gift cards.
The survey can be found online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/regional litterplan.
The Grampians Central West region covers 12 council areas including Moorabool, Hepburn, Ballarat, Central Goldfields, Pyrenees, Ararat, Golden Plains, Northern Grampians, Horsham, Hindmarsh, Yarriambiack and West Wimmera.
