A new one-stop shop mobile and tablet application for all Dundee waste & recycling matters has been launched for residents. 

The app includes real-time push notifications for service changes, personalised bin collection calendars, bin collection reminders, seasonal recycling tips & advice, and a Council-created guide on how best to recycle or dispose of household items. 

The Council’s Environment service have released the application in order to make it easier and quicker for users to find recycling and waste information all in the same place. 

Climate, Environment & Biodiversity Committee Convener Heather Anderson said: “I’m very excited that we’re in a position to now announce the launch of this new waste and recycling app for the city. I’m sure it will bring many benefits to residents when downloaded. 

“With tailored information and personalised features, the app will make the process of recycling and appropriately disposing of waste easier for many Dundee residents. 

“We’ve added this tool because we want to tackle any uncertainty individuals might have around how specific items should be recycled, keep users right up to date with their services, and if they so wish, set up reminders so they don’t miss out on their bins being collected too. 

“All of this contributes to helping our service run efficiently and delivering as best a service to our customers as possible. 

“The app has been pulled together following feedback from residents and has been carefully designed following what has worked elsewhere in Scotland. 

“I encourage everyone with a smart phone or tablet in the city to give it a try to follow our waste and recycling services.” 

Residents can download the new Dundee City Council Waste App on their mobile or tablet device by searching for Dundee MyBins in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

More information about the App, including a Frequently Asked Questions, is available on the new Dundee MyBins website.
