Crawley residents win GREEN!

Cllr Thomas with Ann Inward

Two lucky residents have received a year’s subscription to Crawley Borough Council’s GREENbin service after filling in a survey.

Last July, the council released a survey inviting residents to comment on the current GREENbin service with a view to extending the service to a full year instead of nine months.

As part of the consultation process, surveys were sent to all GREENbin customers and non-customers were invited to fill in the survey online.

The council received a total of 3,494 responses from both customers and non-customers.

Ann Inward of The Link, West Green, was the chosen customer winner, receiving a free year’s subscription and Ms Donovan from Lambourne Close, Furnace Green, was the non-customer winner, receiving a brand new green bin and a year’s free subscription.

The council would like to thank everyone that sent in their views. The feedback received has been most helpful and we are currently exploring options to extend the service.

The results of the survey along with information about changes to the service will be released later this year.

Cabinet Member for Environmental Services and Sustainability, Councillor Geraint Thomas, said: “We had an overwhelming number of responses to the GREENbin survey, which is greatly appreciated! The service is gaining popularity and we want to make sure that it is serving our customers in the most effective way.”

The next GREENbin service will begin in March and fortnightly collections will run until November. The service costs £50 and includes a GREEN bin.
