Horsham District Council has launched a mobile phone app for residents, emphasising that it can help them access recycling and waste services.

It said they will be able to check their next recycling or waste collection day, get personalised collection day reminders, receive notifications of changes to collections, and report missed bins, overflowing public bins or fly tipping quickly and easily.

They will also be able to search how and where items can be recycled, book a special collection service and find their nearest facilities such as recycling centres or leisure venues.

The app, which has been produced in partnership with West Sussex County Council, will also enable users to keep up to date with news and information from the council.

Timely launch

Cllr Jay Mercer, cabinet member for environmental health, recycling and waste, said: “At this time of year we often generate more waste than usual and this app will enable residents to find out what can be recycled at home and, if not, how it should be disposed of, as well as book one of our special free collection services, such as those for used coffee pods, textiles or small electricals.

“Residents can also report issues directly to us through the app, use the search function to find their nearest councillor, council facility, leisure venue and restaurant, view local food hygiene ratings for restaurants and read the latest council news sent straight to their phone.

“This is another step forward in our plans to improve Council services and keep our residents well informed, whether at home or on the move.”
