Culver City Unveils Recycling/Refuse Collection App
January 25, 2018
If you are one of the growing number of people who have a smartphone or tablet you can now download a free Culver City app that puts refuse, recycling, special waste collection details, and more at your fingertips, anytime you want them.
This free mobile web app contains all of the information residents need to know about waste, recycling, and organics services tailored specifically to their neighborhood and street address.
"This is a new way for us to connect with residents about Culver City recycling programs. City staff will be able to update the information on the mobile and web app as necessary during the year, so it will always be current. Residents will never forget a collection day, and that should lead to increased recycling diversion rates. Everybody wins!" said Culver City Mayor Jeffrey Cooper.
The mobile web app, developed by Recycle Coach™, provides residents with a full range of information that is normally on the website or in the collection schedule that the City distributes. But now, residents don't have to go hunting for the printed schedule or sit in front of their computers.
Instead, by downloading Recycle Coach™, Culver City residents can check details for regular and special collections and events for household hazardous waste or e-waste days, and more.
Special features of the Recycle Coach™ mobile and web app include a search function that lets residents quickly find information about what to do with a regular or out-of-the-ordinary item, plus there are tips for reducing and recycling waste in apartments and condominium buildings.
The Culver City Recycle Coach™ Mobile and Web App also includes a special "Report-a-Problem" function that enables residents to report non-emergency municipal problems like missed collections, illegal dumping, overflowing public garbage or recycling bins, potholes, burned out traffic or street lights and more. The Report-a-Problem feature connects the user to ACCESS Culver City. It uses the smartphone's GPS positioning system and built in camera. All people have to do is select the Report-a-Problem function, take a picture, and the problem is automatically emailed to City staff.
