Fanwood is providing a recycling app to residents called Recycle Coach. The goal is to make recycling more convenient for residents, while increasing participation. The mobile application can be installed for free on tablets, smartphones and computers, making information and resources available at your fingertips.
The app is customized for Fanwood and allows users to:
- View Fanwood Public Works pickup schedules
- View County-wide recycling centers and schedules
- Answer questions on how best to recycle a questionable item; be it bi-weekly curbside pickup, 1st Saturday Recycling Center drop-off, special county event, Fanwood Fall Bulk Waste pickup or simply toss it in the garbage.
- Report a problem (missed collection, damaged or missing bin, incorrect app info).
- Communicate with PMUA, Fanwood DPW and app administrator.
- Receive notifications of schedule changes and updates.
Mayor Colleen Mahr said, “We want to give residents every tool possible to ensure Fanwood’s curbside recycling program is successful and convenient. We hope the app will increase recycling and limit the amount of recyclables headed to the landfill so we can continue to do our part to promote a healthy planet.”
Recycle Coach is available for download through the iTunes store, the Google Play store or recyclecoach.com.
