Adur and Worthing Councils have launched a smartphone app to give residents easier access to a number of services.

It has been developed in co-operation with West Sussex County Council.

The councils – which operate under joint management and share services – have highlighted a function of the app that sends residents notifications of bin collections the day before they are due. It will also send messages if a collection is missed due to disruptions and provides information on whether or not different types of rubbish can be recycled.

Other features include a reporting form for environmental issues, missed collections, new bin requests and fly tipping, details of nearby public facilities, listings for local places to eat and food hygiene ratings, council news stories and tweets.

Cllr Emma Evans, Adur's cabinet member for the environment and leisure, said: “This app is a useful tool that will help us to keep residents better informed about any service issues and the latest news from the Councils much more quickly and effectively.”

Cllr John Turley, Worthing's cabinet member for resources including digital, said: “This app already helps residents across West Sussex and rolling it out in Worthing will help us communicate directly with the community on the things that affect their everyday life.
