HRM Waste

HRM Waste App uses your iPhone/iPad GPS sensor to determine your location and then tells you what day your waste is collected, whether the current week is garbage or green bin, and if you can put out recycling. Beautifully simple and easy to use. As well it offers some "do's" and "don'ts" for what to put in each container.
