And The Survey Says . .

Between now and September, Fairfax County residents can visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes to offer their opinions via an online survey about solid waste management in the county. The survey is part of the process to develop a Solid Waste Management Plan to guide the county in the next 20 years. The survey has 24 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Survey questions range from asking about curbside recycling to opinions about the cost of trash collection.

Through this solid waste management planning process, the county hopes to evaluate waste disposal capacity, increase the efficiency of the waste management system, develop long-term projections and protect the environment. The planning process also includes a series of public meetings held from April through November 2003 at locations throughout Fairfax County. Citizens are encouraged to attend the public meetings because their input is essential to make the planning process a success. General information about the Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program and the community meetings is available on the county's Web site at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes.

The schedule for the Solid Waste Management Plan process is:
