I will construct an online survey as a way of gathering statistics to use in my article. I will use surveymonkey.com as this is an easy and reliable website. To keep it short and easy for the public, I will only include two questions.
1. How often do you garden?
2. Would charges on green waste put you off recycling?
The results will be presented in a graph that I can use in my article.
