Evanston Waste Transfer Station Budget Survey Results

Thank you to all those who took the Evanston Waste Transfer Station Budget Survey. City staff have compiled a PDF report of the results from the survey as well as have included the raw responses (without identifying information) from the survey. The survey was conducted in August, 2016 and was focused on collecting community feedback on how the funds awarded to the City through a settlement with the current operator of the facility should be allocated in the City's budget.

Below are all the documents released by the City related to the survey.

  1. Church St. Waste Transfer Station Budget Survey Summary (1 page)
  2. Church St. Waste Transfer Station Budget Survey Report (28 pages)

The raw responses (Excel) includes the actual responses in Excel format from the over 450 individuals who submitted responses to the survey. The Excel document is provided to allow community members to see the source of the data from the report and give them the opportunity to develop their own analysis of the responses.
