Delta launches garbage collection app
The Corporation of Delta is now offering smartphone and tablet users a free mobile app that provides garbage and recycling collection day details at their fingertips.
Delta’s new Collection Schedule App allows users to set customized reminders in advance of their collection day as well as one-time events including spring clean-up and free compost week.
With the app, mobile device users also have access to a full range of information about Delta’s residential garbage and recycling programs, including the Green Can program and the new mattress recycling voucher program.
Other special features of the app include a search function that lets residents quickly determine how to dispose of and recycle a variety of items as well as a report-a-problem function to report missed collections, illegal dumping and more.
“The new mobile app is a great way to help residents remember their collection date and also connect with us by reporting missed collections or finding the latest information about our collection program,” said Mayor Lois E. Jackson in a press release Wednesday. “We want to make recycling and green can collection as easy as possible to encourage greater participation and we hope this app will help with that.”
The app is free to download and is currently available for Apple and Android devices.
