If you live in a flat in Edinburgh, Changeworks would like to ask your views of the shared waste and recycling bins on your street. The results of this survey will help the City of Edinburgh Council improve the service. The short online survey, which only takes 5-10 minutes to complete, is available to Edinburgh residents until 23 October 2017.
By taking part in the survey, you can enter a prize draw* with the chance to win several prizes including vouchers for Pizza Express and Cineworld, and family passes to the Camera Obscura in Edinburgh. You will also be offered the chance to attend a paid focus group, scheduled for November 2017, where feedback and ideas will be explored in more depth.
You can also follow @ChangeworksUK on Facebook and Twitter to share and retweet their posts about the recycling survey.

Over the last six months, place-based research project Leith Creative has been engaging with Leithers, asking the simple question What would you do to make Leith better? Co-delivered by Morvern Cunningham (LeithLate) and Duncan Bremner (Citizen Curator), alongside creative partners Biomorphis, HERE+NOW and Lateral North, Leith Creative has appeared at and facilitated 18 public engagement events in a six month timeframe, reaching over 2000 people who live and/or work in the Leith area.
Now Leith Creative like you to join them, as they feed back on the information they have gathered. The reporting event will take place in Custom Lane, a collaborative centre for design and making in the heart of the Leith community on Thursday 19th October between 6-8pm. Please reserve a place via Eventbrite. Continue reading
