Food waste and community compost questionnaire planned in Akwesasne
AKWESASNE -- The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (SRMT) Environment Division will distribute a food waste/community composting questionnaire to all Blue Bag customers on Feb. 28.
The questionnaire will be left at each Blue Bag customer’s door in a white envelope. The envelope will contain the questionnaire, a pen, a return envelope, and a paper binder. Blue Bag customers are being asked to fill out the questionnaire in its entirety. The questions will be about food waste collection services and composting.In exchange for fully completing the questionnaire, Blue Bag customers will receive one (1) complimentary blue bag. The questionnaire must be completely filled out to qualify for the free blue bag. The Solid Waste program staff will review and verify that questionnaires have been filled out completely, prior to handing out the complimentary blue bags. The pen provided is a small token of appreciation for each participant to keep.
Place completed questionnaires in the provided envelope. The Solid Waste program asks that the envelope then be clipped using the binder clip that is also provided to the next blue bag that is to be picked up on Tuesday, March 7. Community members who wish to have their questionnaire reviewed for completion and immediately receive your complimentary blue bag may also return your questionnaire in person to the SRMT Transfer Station located at 179 County Route 43, Fort Covington, NY.
