Did you know that if you are a resident of Passaic County, you can enjoy the benefits of using the Recycle Coach™ website and app, which puts personalized recycling/garbage collection information on your computer and/or smartphone? The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs has made this new technology available to the residents of all 16 municipalities it serves in order to provide easy-to-find recycling and garbage information when and where you want it.
If you are one of the growing numbers of people who has a smartphone or tablet, you can download the Recycle Coach app from the iTunes Store or Google Play that puts garbage, recycling, special waste collection details and more at your fingertips, anytime you want them.
“Passaic County is pleased to announce that we have facilitated the development of this app & website plug-in for all 16 Passaic County communities which contains all of the information people need to know, tailored specifically to the towns they live in, about residential garbage and recycling services,” said Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager.
The app & website plug-in created by Recycle Coach, provides residents with a full range of information that is normally on a municipality’s website or in the collection schedule that each town distributes. With Recycle Coach, residents no longer have to go hunting for printed information. Instead, by going to www.recyclecoach.com and downloading Recycle Coach™, Passaic County residents can check details for regular and special collections and events for household hazardous waste or e-waste days, and more.
Special features of the Recycle Coach™ app & website plug-in include a search function that lets Passaic County residents quickly find information about what to do with a regular or out-of-the-ordinary item, plus there are tips for reducing and recycling waste in apartment and condo buildings.
For those with smartphones, “Once residents have downloaded the app, they can set it up to give them regular reminders for any of the collection programs, for example, they can set a reminder for the day that a certain recyclable is collected or they can set up alerts just for household hazardous or electronic waste collection days,” Seiden said.
“This is a new way for us to connect with residents across the County about our recycling and other waste collection programs. We’ll be able to update the information on the app & website plug-in as necessary during the year, so it will always be current,” according to Seiden.
Passaic County municipalities will continue to distribute printed materials and have information on their websites for residents who prefer traditional promotional and educational materials.
