Several municipalities in the North Texas region have created solid waste/recycling apps for their citizens to use and be informed on items such as bulk trash pick-up days, holiday schedules, and accepted items in their curbside recycling programs.
Never forget your waste collection day or bulk set-out week again with one of these free garbage and recycling apps.
The app provides residents with reminders for waste collection days, including garbage, recycling, bulk and yard waste. Notifications also include updates on learning events offered by solid waste services, including backyard composting classes, and special events. Residents can choose between push notifications from the app, text messages, emails or voice messages.
The Waste Wizard also helps determine if an item is recyclable and how to dispose of it properly.
