Nice idea - needs updating


I downloaded this app to find out when collection days are but to be honest you are better off visiting the their website as at least that is updated. Over Christmas I checked it and it said the collection day was Saturday, checked it later in the week and it was showing Thursday. Today it is showing Thursday but their website shows Wednesday...
It also says my nearest recycling centre is 7 miles away when there is one just 2 miles down the road.
The idea of the app is great but it needs to be updated and accurate.

Needs updating


I downloaded the app exactly one year ago and found it very useful especially being able to quickly find recycling points and where I could recycle different items as well as any delays on waste disposable days. Unfortunately, I had to uninstall the app due to a lack of space on my phone. When I managed to re-download the app and the screen is stuck on the page where I choose my estate.

I tried this on different iPhone models and iOS but experienced the same result. Please update the app!

Inaccurate Information


3 times I have used this app when I’ve suspected the bin day may be different.

On 2 occasions when the bin day had changed, they hadn’t updated the app, but the council had updated the website and twitter.

On the 3rd occasion they had updated the day, but it was the wrong day!

This app would be useful if 2 things changed:

1) They updated the information on it when the bin day changes

2) If push notifications were added, so that when the bin day changes you get a notification on your phone saying something “Due to the snow this weeks collection will now be <day>”

Then it would be a useful app for anybody in MK
