Never Miss Your Waste Collection Day Again!

New Rochelle has joined other Westchester municipalities in bringing collection information and schedules to the next digital level through a new downloadable app and interactive website.

The mobile app, Recycle Right Westchester, can be downloaded for both Apple and Android devices. The app features garbage, recycling, and special pickup collection schedule specific to your house address- with the option of setting pickup reminders. Got a question about how to dispose of something? The searchable “Recyclopedia” database directs residents to what can be reused, recycled, composted or disposed.

In addition to the app, the Recycle Right program is available online at www.newrochelleny.com/DPWonline. Users can type in their home address in the “My Schedule” tool and then:

· Sign up for waste collection reminders by email, phone call, or text message.

· Download their collection schedule into your iCal, Google calendar or Microsoft Outlook calendar.

· Print their collection schedule

The website also features the Recyclopedia database.

Both the app and database can be translated into nine different languages.

“This new app and online tool make it easier for residents to correctly identify and sort the variety of materials disposed of in households every day,” said Public Works Commissioner Jim Moran. “Even small changes will translate over time to tons of waste diverted from our landfills.”
