MRWA launches Food Waste Attitudes and Behaviours Questionnaire

Eligible participants for the questionnaire will be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of vouchers for a leading UK supermarket.

Zero Waste LCR (on behalf of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority) has today launched a questionnaire to get a basic gauge of the current behaviours and opinions around food and food waste.

A Waste Composition Analysis which was carried out across all six districts of Liverpool City Region (Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens, Wirral) back in 2021, identified that 26.3% of residual waste bins contained food waste that could have been composted. The decomposition of organic waste in the form of methane is 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide at contributing to climate change.

As such, the Food Waste Attitudes and Behaviours Questionnaire has been devised with a view to shaping future behavioural change initiatives, which will act as a pivotal component in the fight against food waste and climate change.

The questionnaire and subsequent £100 supermarket voucher prize draw is open to residents of Liverpool City Region, who are aged 18 years or over, and are wholly or partially responsible for their household’s food shop.

Eligible participants can find out more and take the 10-minute questionnaire here.
