MEDIA ALERT: Trash and Recycling Collection Study telephone survey begins Nov. 14



On behalf of the City of Springfield, Fort Hays State University Institute of Public Affairs students, under the direction of consultant firm Burns & McDonnell, will begin conducting a telephone survey of Springfield residents as part of the ongoing Trash and Recycling Collection Study. The survey will be conducted over approximately one month beginning Monday, Nov. 14.

Springfield residents will be chosen through a random selection process and contacted via telephone for the five to seven minute survey. Caller identification information will read “785-261-9059” or “Dockins.” Surveyors will identify themselves as calling on behalf of the City of Springfield. Questions included in the survey will address trash and recycling collection, including residents’ preferences and concerns. Those contacted will not be asked to provide any personal information, but will be requested to confirm they reside within Springfield city limits.

Information from this survey will be compiled as part of the public input process for the Trash and Recycling Collection Study. Overall findings and recommendations from this study will be presented to City Council in early 2017.

Please consider participating if contacted for this important survey.
