“What this application does is present you with an amazingly simple-to-use interface that shows categories of recycling, first of all. This app is so easy to use and so helpful when we want to recycle our wares that it’s almost amazing that it’s free. Thanks to Earth911 though, it certainly is free, and it’s certainly worth a download – grab it!” - Chris Burns, SlashGear

What's New in Version 2.5.4
Fixed defaulting to material list if no internet
iRecycle can be pretty much be considered to be the ultimate recycle application. It has a comprehensive database of recycle materials to select and check to see whether they can be disposed of. Not only does the app have many categories listed to search in but also a search box for items you want to recycle that may not be listed. It is easy to search recycle materials with the colorful tile menu display as it has a listing of categories including Automotive, Batteries, Construction, Electronics, Garden, Glass, Hazardous, Household, Metal, Paint, Paper and Plastic. When clicking on a category you get taken to distinct items that fit the category's profile. For example, if you select batteries you get listing of batteries of all types whether they be from laptops or remote controls. Once selecting the item you want to know about you are given a listing of recycle center or centers near you that will take the item. You get information on that place including the phone number, address, materials accepted and a link to the website. From my past use the search resulted in accurate local recycling centers. All users who want to do good and recycle properly should download this application.
Good info, but A-B Map Route feature broken
The information for this app is great and has lots of locations to recycle everything. However, the map route to location feature seems to be broken. When looking at a location of a recycling spot on the map, whenever I hit the "A-B" route to location button when it transitions to Apple Maps app and says the location of the recycling center is right where you are, rather than the real address of where the recycling location is. So you need to manually enter in the address of the recycling location you want to go to in the maps app. If it was fixed and it actually mapped to the right location I would rate this app 4-5 stars. Hopefully they can fix it. Feel free to contact me if you do not understand what I mean and I can better articulate the error and necessary fix.
Made itself useful in 2 minutes!
Within 2 minutes of downloading this app I found a place to recycle an old gas grill that stopped working a year ago, which has been sitting there taking up space in my garage. Also found a place to recycle various type of light bulbs and batteries!
