What do you think about trash? Kansas wants to know

Tell the state about your waste — and what the state should do to cut down how much ends up in landfills.

That's the idea behind a state survey prompted by a new law that seeks to create data about how Kansans feel about their trash service, recycling options and what the state should do to encourage folks to recycle, compost and generate less garbage.

Lawmakers approved a bill earlier this year that requires a study to assess solid waste reduction practices across the state. They will use the survey results as they consider new policies during the 2014 legislative session.

The survey asks a series of questions, including what you think about trash services in your area and if there are enough recycling options. It also asks people what role they think the state should play in encouraging recycling, composting and other practices.

Kansans can take the survey here.
