Byron Shire Council has launched a phone app which hopes to take the pain out rubbish collection day by letting you know where you are at with your refuse.
Byron Shire Council’s new waste and recycling app, Recycle Coach will make sure you never miss another bin collection day.
But wait! You also get…
The app has special features including a personalised bin collection calendar, custom pick-up reminders, an extensive a-z recycling guide, plus tips for reducing waste and better recycling.
Your phone will send you a reminder for bin day, complete with which bin you should put out, or you can enter your refuse item and the app will let you know which bin to put it in, or where to take it for recycling or disposal.
Byron Shire Council Mayor, Simon Richardson, said it’s a great tool that contains important information, tailored specifically to neighbourhoods, about kerbside waste and recycling services.
‘This is a great platform, and a new way for us to connect directly with the community about our resource recovery programs and services,’ he said.
‘It allows us to send educational messages and event notices directly to people who have the app.’
If you don’t have a smart phone you can also access this information online on Council’s Waste and Recycling web page.
Council will continue provide information on the website, and printed materials such as bin collection calendars and a-z recycling guides will still be available for residents who prefer traditional educational materials.
Recycle Coach can be downloaded for free from the App Store for iPhone or Google play for Android, and select Byron Shire as the location, or view it online at www.byron.nsw.gov.au/recycle-coach.
