Environmental Services Satisfaction Survey

Our Environmental Services Team provide a range of services including bin collections, street cleaning and graffiti removal. We recently conducted a satisfaction survey to find out what residents thought about these services.  

The closing date for responses was Tuesday 21 May and the results were made available in the autumn 13 edition of the South Cambs Magazine.

We would like to thank all those that took part in this survey.

Our next survey will be sent out later this year.
