Trash Hauling/Recycling Survey 2018
RequiredRequired Question(s)

Give Us Your Feedback!

The Hudson Environmental Awareness Committee (EAC) is seeking your input about trash hauling and recycling services in Hudson.  Over two years ago, the City implemented the preferred trash and recycling hauler program.  A preferred hauler program provided competitive rates for residents and allowed an option to choose a trash and recycling hauler.  If you are a Hudson resident, we are seeking feedback on the current program and possible changes in services for the next trash and recycling contract.  It will take less than 10 minutes of your time. Please encourage your Hudson friends and neighbors to take the survey as well. The more feedback we receive, the better we will be able to gauge what the community wants which will help us offer the best possible options to our citizens.
