Wamboin Community Association

Survey Results

Since the formation of the Palerang LGA in 2004, Palerang Council has conducted three surveys that have included, or been entirely devoted to matters associated with its waste management strategy. Links to the relevant survey documents (questionnaires and/or results) are provided below. The documents are presented without any additional comment, except to note that they are all essentially consistent in their findings with respect to preferred waste management options in the Bywong/Sutton/Wamboin area.

Community Telephone Survey (Artcraft Research, 2005)
