A state agency has a developed an online survey that is designed to measure the public’s habits for disposing of solid wastes.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s waste management bureau is conducting the survey to meet a legislative requirement that the agency assess the adequacy of solid waste reduction practices in Kansas and to report those findings to the Legislature in January 2014, a KDHE news release said.

The survey was put online Friday at kdheks.gov and will remain there through Aug. 16.The link to the survey is on the right side of the website under featured items.

KDHE will collect information from the survey, meetings with interested stakeholder and data sources to help determine trends in recycling, composting and waste disposal, said Bill Bider, KDHE’s director of waste management.

The survey site includes links to relevant background information.
