SOCRRA Launches New Recycling App

Waste Wizard aims to help 12 member communities determine which materials can be reused, recycled, composted or disposed.

SOCRRA has made it even easier for residents to inquire about recycling and waste disposal with the launch of a new tool called Waste Wizard. This comprehensive search tool will assist residents of SOCRRA’s 12 member communities to determine which materials can be reused, recycled, composted or disposed.

To use the new tool, residents type in the material they wish to learn more about, and information is instantly provided regarding proper handling. To make the Waste Wizard even more accessible, residents can download a free mobile app for both Apple and Android devices. The Waste Wizard is also available on the SOCRRA website, which was recently redesigned to be more user friendly and helpful for residents.

“Our residents are avid recyclers and want to ensure they are placing materials to the curb the right way,” said Jeff McKeen, general manager of SOCRRA, in a statement. “With the Waste Wizard tool, residents are no longer limited to our business hours and can inquire 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and get the answers they are looking for easily and quickly.”

The new tool will provide SOCRRA with information about what materials are most often asked about, which will help target future education and outreach.

“SOCRRA is very excited to offer this enhanced level of customer service for our residents,” added McKeen.
