I was hoping for an easy-to-use app showing which materials I could recycle in my blue box or take to a recycling location nearby. Unintuitive and lacking information. I was looking about how to recycle three ringed loose leaf binders. There are not enough options for alternative names for different items. Very disappointed.

Frustrating how few recycling resources are listed, as a employee of a recycling depot in Kelowna I'm confused as to why only one of the resources I know of personaly is listed. And it is very annoying to be asked Constantly to turn on my location I would be ok entering a location but I do not wish for other apps on my phone to track my location. I was really hoping I could use this app to help myself and my customers who want to recycle but don't have a easy or fast way of contacting local resources.

Use to be a good app but no longer works with my S9+. Only shows numbers where it use to display the sub items of materials you want to recycle. Seeing as the last update to the app was 2016 its woefully out of date with new businesses or places that don't take certain items anymore. I'm back to just using the internet.
