Dundee City Council is seeking people’s views on the City Centre Commercial Waste Project pilot.

As part of the wider Take Pride in Your City campaign, the initiative aims to reduce trade waste containers on roads in a bid to boost cleanliness, encourage more recycling & reduce public safety issues.

The survey is being undertaken to gain views on the impact of the pilot, which has been running for nine months of its year-long run.

Fair Work, Economic Growth and Infrastructure convener Councillor Steven Rome said: “The council is working hard with retailers and businesses to make the city centre a more attractive and appealing destination for everyone.

“I am pleased at the early results of this pilot and would like to thank everyone who is making changes to their operations to help implement the new approach.

“At this stage, it is important that we gain the views of as many people as possible, both from business and the public, to allow us to evaluate the pilot.

“We have taken on board a number of lessons from the successful Glasgow scheme and will continue to listen to businesses and the public about their views on what we have being carrying out in Dundee.”

Climate, Environment & Biodiversity convener Councillor Heather Anderson added: “We are encouraging businesses to cut down on waste and recycle more in this pilot.

“The council has also put a number of environmental improvements in place which are intended to enhance our city centre for locals and visitors alike.”

The survey runs until Monday December 18.
