MyWaste App Puts Sanitation Information at Fingertips

Do you know on which day your recycling is picked up? How about the proper way to dispose of an old air conditioning unit? All that information and much more is now available at a moment’s notice via the MyWaste app.

This free app provides residents of New Brunswick with trash and recycling information specific to their zone. The app features a slew of sanitation and recycling information, including monthly calendars of trash and recycling pickup days, a search function that provides information on the proper way to dispose of specific items, and tips on ways to reduce waste.

Users can also set reminders to inform them of trash and recycling pickup days, as well as directly report problems to the City’s Public Works Department.

“This app contains a lot of information and addresses many common questions we receive at the Department of Public Works,” said Donna Caputo, Recycling Coordinator for the City of New Brunswick. “This app will advise residents of  regular and holiday garbage and recycling pickup days. It will also detail the proper way to dispose of items like appliances and household chemicals while providing residents with an electronic formto submit comments directly to the DPW.”

This app is especially useful for off-campus college students around New Brunswick.

“This app is a great way to utilize existing technology to improve our trash and recycling programs” Caputo said. “I’m confident residents that use the app will love it.”

The app is available in both English and Spanish, for iphone and Android users. The MyWaste program is also available on the City of New Brunswick website, via the DPW page.
