A North American Trash and Recycling Survey update is being conducted by Skumatz Economic Research Associates (SERA) for 2021. The data are used to track trends and latest methods in Solid Waste Management, conduct quantitative analyses to guide program refinements, and other studies, many of which are published in aggregate form (no name / individual data) in Resource Recycling. This year’s special topic includes a drill-down on contamination strategies.
As advocates in the industry, we are hoping you can help us with a survey and be entered for a drawing if you wish. Previous results were presented in a free webinar last fall and the results of this national study will also be presented at various state conferences.
In the past, the survey has typically taken 15-20 minutes. If you need to do part, and then hold it open – or come back in, the survey allows that. Feel free to call if you have questions or would rather complete it by phone (303-494-1178; firstname.lastname@example.org). We’re hoping for responses in the next 3 weeks (roughly). Thank you very much!
