Connecticut Shell Recycling Survey

shellfishDo you work with a restaurant that sells oysters? Please pass on this survey to them! We are recruiting individuals for a research project to gauge the CT food service sector interest in shell recycling. We have obtained prospective participants’ email addresses through project partners at the Connecticut Restaurant Association. Participation involves a survey that will take 15-20 minutes to complete. The survey consists of questions about your thoughts, motivations, experiences, and challenges with respect to shell recycling, and demographics.
