Bin-Ovation making many households ‘appy

Councillor James McKeown, Senior HRC attendant David Ewing and Education Officer Catherine Hunter.

Almost 1,000 users have now signed up to the Waste Bin-Ovation App in Mid and East Antrim.

The app was launched in October 2018.

The system allows householders to view Household Waste Recycling site opening times, bin collection dates and up-to-date information on recycling.

In December the bin collection dates were viewed 636 times with holiday bin collection arrangements also a priority for users.

An additional 215 new users downloaded the waste app in December, bringing the total number of users to 855 since the launch on October 28.

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Councillor Lindsay Millar, said: “I am delighted to see more people using the Bin-Ovation app.

“The app is user friendly and has useful information which all our residents can avail of.

“As a council, we’re proud of our efforts to preserve the environment and reduce waste. This app communicates directly with our residents about these issues and can really make a difference.

“We’re encouraging more people to download the app to their smartphones or tablet devices.”

The Bin-Ovation app allows users to set reminders that tell you which bin goes out on which date, so you won’t need to look out and see what your neighbors are doing.

It also provides a library of over 300 household items with photographs, instructions, and which bin/recycling centre to dispose of the item in.

It is filled with useful tips on how to reduce, re-use and recycle, including links to external websites and opening hours to your local recycling centres in the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council area.
