Commercial waste survey prize winner

One lucky West Oxfordshire organisation has won a luxury food hamper after returning a survey, which was sent to all the Council's commercial waste customers. The Oxford School of Drama, based in Woodstock, was randomly selected.

The Council, in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council, is exploring ways to improve the Commercial Waste service within the District and the survey is part of this work.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment, commented on how the questionnaire provided businesses with the opportunity to comment on the collection of Commercial Waste in West Oxfordshire. He said, "We are grateful to all those who took the time to complete the survey and give us their views on the service. The results will also help us to shape future service provision, in particular with regard to recycling."

The survey has enabled the Council to assess what advice and practical help they can provide to help customers reduce the amount of waste produced. This will be achieved in various ways including information packs, waste reduction workshops and a waste audit tailored to the needs of the business - all of which are free!
