Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership, also known as Gan Bwyll / Go Safe, works with a number of key partners with the aim of
reducing the number of people Killed or Seriously Injured (KSI) in traffic collisions in Wales.
Each year, the partnership conducts a Public Opinion Survey to monitor public attitudes enabling direct comparisons to be made with previous surveys allowing for campaigns and interventions to be targeted.
We are delighted to announce that Enventure Research has been commissioned to undertake the 2012 Public Opinion Survey across Wales.
The fieldwork will involve carrying out 1,100 face to face interviews in the four police regions of South Wales, Dyfed Powys, Gwent and North Wales. Interviews will start in March with final reporting and feedback to the partnership at the beginning of April.
The London Borough of Hackney has a well established weekly collection system. To improve the recycling service, a food waste recycling collection service was introduced across the borough in March 2007,which provided residents with two additional receptacles to recycle their food waste with.
However, current participation in the food waste recycling service is low, with less than 25% of households participating and only 12.4% of food waste being captured. The Council, therefore, wishes to carry out a door-knocking exercise focussing on the food waste service, targeting all 49,380 street level properties and possibly 12,620 estate based properties within the scheme, in order to promote this under-utilised service and thereby increase the amount of food waste recycled.
We are pleased to announce that Enventure has been commissioned to carry out this important piece of work and we look forward to working with officers at Hackney Council to ensure a stepped changed in resident participation in the food waste collection scheme.
