Tell us what's important to you in waste management and recycling:

1. Spend a few minutes with our Budget Allocator (now closed) tool and show us how you would allocate money towards waste and recycling services.

2. Take a few seconds to complete the quick polls.

3. Take the quick resale (tip) shop quiz and let us know what you'd purchase from a resale shop.

4. Take the recycling quiz so that we can find out how best to target our recycling education campaigns.

Your say, your voice, your Launceston!
