Dundee City Council has launched a mobile app for its waste and recycling services.

It said the Dundee MyBins app provides residents with real time push notifications for service changes, personalised bin collection calendars, bin collection reminders, seasonal recycling tips and advice, and a council created guide on how best to recycle or dispose of household items.

Its environment service has released the app to make it easier for users to find relevant information in one place.

Easier process

Dundee’s climate, environment and biodiversity committee convener, Heather Anderson, said: “With tailored information and personalised features, the app will make the process of recycling and appropriately disposing of waste easier for many Dundee residents. 

“We’ve added this tool because we want to tackle any uncertainty individuals might have around how specific items should be recycled, keep users right up to date with their services, and if they so wish, set up reminders so they don’t miss out on their bins being collected too. 

“All of this contributes to helping our service run efficiently and delivering as best a service to our customers as possible. 

“The app has been pulled together following feedback from residents and has been carefully designed following what has worked elsewhere in Scotland.”
