HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – As the town of Huntsville continues to grow, waste is becoming a big problem.
As part of a broader commitment to caring for our environment, the city’s green team is conducting a citywide survey through the end of this month to receive public feedback on litter. .
There are about a dozen city employees who clean up trash in the city – seven days a week. Officials say it’s difficult for these employees and the Green Team volunteer groups to stay on top of all the trash in the city.
Brian Walker, Director of Landscape Management for the City of Huntsville, hopes this survey could lead to some innovative ideas for waste prevention.
Walker says the survey takes about four minutes and can be done anonymously. The survey features multiple-choice questions and residents can submit alternative suggestions for new ways to prevent and mitigate litter in the city.
“If you see a need, you can always call our office and let us know of an immediate need there. Whether you see a waste dump or an illegal dump or anything like that…but the The survey itself kind of gives us a general idea of each community in the city and their specific needs and how we can meet them,” Walker said.
The survey is available until August 31. It can be found on the Green Team social media pages and on the city’s website.
