Residents in a number of Aberdeenshire towns are being contacted as part of a survey concerning new recycling services in their area.
Letters and a short questionnaire will be sent to around 2,200 households in Fraserburgh, Macduff, Peterhead, Huntly and Turriff over the next few weeks.
Residents will be asked a number of questions including why they recycle and how convenient the new service is and will be able to provide feedback anonymously.
The survey results will be used to identify the challenges of recycling services, provide advice and assistance to households in the contacted areas and make improvements where necessary.
A new food waste collection and recycling service continues to be rolled out throughout Aberdeenshire, with the final stage to be introduced in south Aberdeenshire in March 2015.
The changes have been made to help the council meet the Scottish Government’s Zero Waste targets by increasing the range of materials collected at the kerbside and making it easy for householders to use, raising the recycling rate.
