Amazing App! This app has completely helped me become better at recycling and more knowledgeable. I could not live without it!


This app is really nice to have, I don't miss any garbage pick up's anymore. And they send you a message if there is a schedule change.

Great App. Super convenient and easy to use. Love being able to search to figure out where my items go (trash, recycling or green bin). Definitely recommend.


Great app for clarification of what is or is not recyclable. Use to clean and wash so many items that I now find are plain regular trash. Love it.
