Broadland: 5,000 residents already using new bins app

Broadland Bin Collections app

Almost 5,000 residents have downloaded Broadland District Council's bin collection app since it launched last month.

The new app helps residents stay informed about bin collections and recycling information specific to their address. Broadland District Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Judy Leggett, said:

“I'm delighted to see so many downloads in just the first month of our app. This is a really easy way for our residents to receive up-to-date information about waste and bin collection, which is particularly handy for bank holidays. Having this platform where you can receive all bin guidance in one place is a great way to keep residents updated and help us push forward with our environmental targets.”

The app displays the bin collection days for your address, notifies you of updates or disruptions with bin collections, and provides information on what you can and cannot recycle. You can also set yourself a reminder to put your bins out, print your own bin collection calendar, and play a waste sorting game.

The launch of this new app is just one of the ways Broadland District Council is working to make recycling information quicker and easier to access, and further increase its current recycling rate of 50%.
