Better than nothing. App has no search function. Phoned hotline but am hearing impaired and the organization they suggested doesn't seem to be included at website.
Not only does it tell you where to recycle obscure things that would otherwise get thrown out, but it will show you the options closest to you. Brilliant. Also offers suggestions on where to donate, etc.
Love this app!! I am currently cleaning up and organizing my home and had been frustrated where some of the items should go. This app is helping me a lot being efficient!
This app turned out being pretty useless to me. As a student living in Squamish, I was excited for its potential as an educational material. However, the interface is boring and doesn't allow for any searching or information-learning. I think it would be valuable to add a search function. For example, I could search "Daipers" and the resuts could show me examples of different commercial daiper products (even extending to cloth vs. disposable), with an additional star or plug for the most eco-friendly options. Then, I could choose one and it could show me first what the most likely stream my district will accept the waste item in - possibly with some information about the materials in the product are and how they can or can't be recycled. THEN additional information would include depots or landfills which I may drive to and dispose of this product. The reality is that most people just throw all of their garbage in their home landfill streams. The suggested style of app could be taught to kids in public schools, so they could learn the information effortlessly and teach it to their parents, integrate it into their lifestyles. Contact me if you have money and app-design skills ! :D
App unable to connect Keep getting a "unable to connect" message even if wifi and data roaming is connected.
Great reference. Used it often during my spring cleaning and purging times.
