Rollout! is a simple app to make figuring out the City of Houston's trash pickup easy!
Forget about peeking outside to see if your neighbor's bins are out, with Rollout! we use your phone to look up your location and instantly let you see your schedule for your neighborhood. You can set up reminders to tell you when to take out your trash to make sure you don't miss recycling day again.
Rollout! is a labor of love from the Sketch City Houston Hackathon by Kenton Gray (@kentonue). Joel Cook helped with the design.
Special thanks to former Mayor Parker, Jason Herbst and Jeff Reichman (@fileunderjeff)
NOTE: This app is only available for areas covered under City of Houston Solid Waste Management.

Great idea but wrong
I was excited to see the city rolled out this app. You can enter your address or "Use this Location" and set when to be reminded of all of the different pickup days. But the app has it WRONG. It has my pickup weeks reversed from my actual schedule as shown on the official 2017 Bi-Weekly Collection Schedule. The APP needs some work!
Thanks for fixing the APP and for your developer response. Schedule is populating correctly now. I’ve upgraded to 4 Stars. It would be worth 5 Stars to see current updates from Solid Waste like when they plan to resume heavy trash pickup.
Hey sorry there was a bug that has long been fixed! Sorry for the inconvenience, if you ever have a problem feel free to reach out!
Schedule is wrong
The app is totally backwards on its mainfunction of advising of specific trash/recycling pick up at one's home, as the schedule it shows for my address does not matchthe 2017 on-line recycling calendar just published by the City of Houston. The app does have some good general info about trash guidelines, recycling drop-off centers, etc., but some users may not even find it, as the only way to access that info is to accidentally tap an icons on the page with the incorrect info. Good idea, but needs work. Hope corrections are made, as it would be very useful if accurate!!!
So there was a bug that would happen every time on the new year, and it is long since fixed now so I'm really sorry about not responding til now! I hope you try Rollout! again. Hit me up at email@example.com if you have any more problems.
Love this app - use it weekly
I really do rely on this app on a weekly basis ever since it rolled out. With Houston's biweekly recycling pickup I find myself consulting the app every trash day. When I recently notified the developer of an schedule error the problem was corrected in hours. Thanks so much for this most wonderful app.
Thanks for the 💖!
