Community Surveys

Community surveys are regularly undertaken at the Shire of Esperance to gather data that will assist Council when making decisions on behalf of the community. Surveys can be specific to a project, service or facility or can be based on all Shire services. Community members are encouraged to participate in surveys when the opportunity arises. This makes sure data collected is representative of community sentiment and provides a sound base for the development and determination of decisions that need to be made in the future.

Surveys ask for your views on projects, local services and facilities and your ideas about how these can be developed, maintained or improved. Surveys are a positive way for the community to have a say.

Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) Survey - Open Now

The Shire of Esperance is working towards improving the community’s waste and recycling system, by introducing a third bin for organic waste. The FOGO system will provide residents with a dedicated bin for waste, such as kitchen scraps, spoilt food and garden debris like lawn clippings and small branches. Valuable mulch, soil conditioners or compost can be created from the organic materials processed from the collection

Complete the Survey HERE.

FOGO has been adopted by numerous councils in Australia and is a proven waste management tool, with environmental and economic benefits, including the reduction of methane gas production in landfill. A bin audit in 2019 showed over 50% of waste in the green bins of the Esperance community was organic waste – food, garden waste or paper products.

The aim of this survey is to understand your future requirements and aspirations for waste and recycling services within the Shire of Esperance. In addition, your feedback will assist the Shire with their development of waste management and recycling strategies.

Survey closes Monday 8 November 2021.
