Failed to do its job
I get this is an outdated app, but the fact that you can have reminders for your town’s pick-up days are great... except when this app doesn’t send you reminders. I have it set up so I get reminded 12 hours before the recycling date, and yet I received no such reminder. I probably shouldn’t have trusted this app as much as I did because I ended up missing my pickup day, but I mean how hard is it to send a simple reminder?? Also yes people in fact have phones larger than the iPhone 4, so that annoying black bar and stretched resolution is NOT going for the app.
It does what it does
It’s a fairly simple app. You select the town and address and it’ll remind you to take out the garbage or recycling. It doesn’t sound like much until holidays interrupt normal
Collection schedules. Nothing worse than having an overflowing garbage bin and finding out garbage pickup was yesterday due to holiday changes.
App can also track when to put out leaf bags, grass bags, Christmas tree collection, hazardous waste special pick up days, and other non regular garbage/recycling pickups. At “free”, it’s certainly worth the effort to download.
Just got a reminder that due to Thanksgiving, recycling is Wednesday this week and not Friday. Plus, there is no Thursday trash collection which means if I miss Monday’s collection, I’m going to have an overflowing trash bin for an entire week. Better take out that trash.
One of my favourite things about this app so far is the detail included with each item. I was able to read that the question of waste water while rinsing recyclables (which I had just been pondering yesterday) had been considered and what the current reasoning is. That’s amazing!
