WALLA WALLA — The city of Walla Walla is seeking opinions on hours of operation for the Sudbury Road Landfill.
The landfill is currently open year-round Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is closed to the public on major holidays.
The city is conducting an online survey to help determine how customers currently use the landfill. The evaluation may result in a reduction in the hours of operation or other changes in order to address rising costs of operation and associated services.
In a release, Melissa Warner, sustainability coordinator, said the survey will help determine what changes in hours would have the least impact on users or better serve their needs. People who don’t currently use the landfill are also encouraged to take the survey in order to find out if a change in hours would better accommodate new customers.
The survey is available through Oct. 31 at SurveyMonkey and on the city’s website.
