Halifax Waste Collection

Tired of always looking at your neighbors house to find out if the Green Bin should go out to the curb? This app will use your phone's location to automatically determine when your waste collection day is. In advance of collection day, it will pop up a notification to remind you to take out the trash and it will tell you what type of collection day it is - green bin, trash, and/or recycling. In addition, the app also includes useful information regarding waste collection in HRM such as "What goes where?" and/or where the closest Enviro-Depot is. It works for all locations within the HRM and takes just seconds to setup and use!

Value Added to Residents of HRM

No more guessing what collection day it is!
