[ARCHIVED] Survey for Garbage Service Needs

Survey for Garbage Survey

The City of Murfreesboro wants to know the future curbside trash collection service needs of commercial enterprises inside the City limits.

Postcards have been mailed to more than 1800 Murfreesboro businesses who are not currently served as customers of the Murfreesboro Solid Waste Department. 
This postcard features a QR Code to a two-minute survey. If your business has not received a survey, we encourage you complete one here. 

From a mobile device, you can take a screenshot of this page and then tap/hold on the QR code to take the survey.

“The survey is an attempt to quantify the tonnage of garbage generated by the City’s commercial customers that are not currently being collected by the Murfreesboro Solid Waste Department,” said Assistant City Manager Darren Gore. “This information will be useful to determine how much commercial trash could be delivered to a future transfer station or processing facility on Butler Drive.” 

The simple survey consists mainly of the size and number of receptables the commercial enterprise uses along with the number of collections per week and estimated percentage of food waste generated. Restaurants generate larger amounts of food waste that can be helpful in the anaerobic digestor for potential biogas production.
