We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

Why residents might not be using their brown food and garden waste bins after analysis by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority found that 20 per cent of general waste collected in our borough was food waste.

You said

The survey found that 96 per cent of Rochdale residents felt that they understood how food and garden waste bins should be used whilst 10 per cent of respondents admitted to throwing away their food waste into the general waste bin. A number of residents stated that they used a combination of both bins to dispose of unwanted food.

Most residents surveyed said that they throw away food that is inedible, such as potato peelings, tea bags and banana skins. However, 51 per cent also said that they disposed of food that was out of date, with around one to three plates of food thrown out per resident per week.

14 per cent of residents told us that they did not always recycle their food waste as they think it is unhygienic, dirty or smell.

We did

This information will now be used to inform communications campaigns to encourage residents who sometimes use the wrong bin to always dispose of their food waste correctly and to specifically target those who never use their brown bin.
