In an effort to help residents of Roanoke, N.C., remember when to put out their waste and recycling bins, the city has launched a mobile app entitled Recycle Coach. The app, which is free for download at the iTunes App Store and Google Play, provides residents with friendly reminders of when to place their trash, recycling and bulk and brush items out for collections.
The Dallas Sanitation Department also launched an app last year to improve communication with residents. And Republic Services rolled out an app in 2014 for its waste and recycling customers. To view other innovative and informative waste and recycling apps, click here.
The Roanoke Times has more information:
Roanokers who struggle to know when it’s trash day or recycling day now have a better reminder method than noticing when their neighbors put their trash out.
The city launched a free mobile and web app Wednesday called Recycle Coach that gives reminders specific to a resident’s address for trash, recycling and bulk and brush item pick up. Roanoke picks up residential trash weekly but collects mixed recycling every other week on a rotation based on the city’s geographic quadrants.
