Share your views about your kerbside recycling collection 


Cornwall Council is asking for information to help inform and shape Cornwall’s future kerbside recycling and waste collection. What people tell us, in our questionnaire, will help us to understand the impact on residents of proposed changes to the waste and recycling contract in 2020.


Cornwall Council Cabinet Members met in November to discuss recommendations for a new recycling and waste collection which will commence in April 2020. The Cabinet supported a model used extensively in Welsh authorities and English authorities which would mean a weekly collection of recycling and food waste and a fortnightly collection of waste that cannot be recycled.


Evidence shows that by making recycling collections more frequent, increasing the range of materials that are recycled, and introducing food waste collections on a weekly basis, we will be able to help Cornwall increase recycling from 35.7.% to reach the national target of 50% by 2020.


Please take the time to complete the following survey to help shape the service we provide in the future, and inform how we can help you recycle more for Cornwall. 


If you need the survey and consultation information in another format or language, for example large print or easy read, please contact us:
