Have your say
for the future of
Blacktown Council's
waste services

Thank you for your interest in this important research project.

Woolcott Research & Engagement is an independent market research company. We have been engaged by Blacktown City Council to speak with local Blacktown residents to gain a better understanding of your preferences for the future of waste management services in the local area.

Participation in this project will involve the following steps:

Attending a 90 minute online forum discussion from 6-7:30pm in October

(Dates as per precinct below)
This will be conducted over Zoom and will require you to download the Zoom app on your phone, tablet or computer. You will also need a microphone and preferably a camera activated on your chosen device. Instructions will be provided.

Visiting a website

To access information, watch videos and provide written feedback. This will take approximately 30 minutes and must be completed before the second forum (see next).
