Not being maintained lets this down

This app has potential to be a useful tool but it's badly let down by not being maintained.

There's recycle dates missing, the contact email address doesn't work and generally nobody seems to be checking this is in order.

If these simple and basic things are fixed it'll be very good (although I think there's too many unnecessary features) but not yet

iOS 11

Sorry to see that this useful app has not been updated for iOS 11.

A good start, but could be improved

Whilst this is undoubtedly a good app for a local council, it does lack some very basic things that would make it useful. For instance, why doesn't the app link to iCalendar to add collection dates - the only option is to set individual reminders? And why doesn't it link into gps to discover my location rather than having to put in a postcode? Good first effort, and I look forward to future changes. I'm not going to delete it, which is always a good sign!
