DEFRA has issued a second survey to the waste and recycling sector asking for the latest information on how the current Covid-19 situation is affecting the industry.
The survey, which is about 30 minutes long, includes questions about staff numbers; absence rates; supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE); volumes of material being processed; and any changes to capacity that businesses are experiencing.
This is the second survey they have carried out and they are asking businesses to reply with information from England only, to have one response per company and to make sure the same email address is used as was used in the last survey. They are planning to issue the survey once a fortnight.
The deadline for completing this week’s survey is 23.59 on Wednesday April 29th. You can complete the DEFRA Survey here
