NORTH BRUNSWICK — For residents looking to reduce their household waste and become better recyclers, they can look no further than the Recycle Coach app – now available in North Brunswick.
“North Brunswick is excited to join the Recycle Coach network, which will transform how we communicate local collection, waste and recycling information to our residents. Beyond that, the platform includes engagement and educational tools to help people manage and correctly dispose of their waste,” Mayor Francis “Mac” Womack said in a prepared statement.
Residents can access Recycle Coach from their desktop computers, mobile devices, or through digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. By leveraging the power of voice technology, the platform makes it easy for people to get local disposal information for thousands of household items when they need it, according to the statement.
With Recycle Coach, residents can stay organized with custom curbside collection and events calendars, receive collection reminders and real-time updates on service disruptions, become recycling experts with a comprehensive “What Goes Where?” search tool, and use the problem-reporting tool equipped with geolocation to notify municipal customer services about issues like missed collections, according to the statement.
“Ultimately, the service takes the guesswork out of recycling, empowering residents to make smarter disposal decisions and take an active approach to reducing household waste. For North Brunswick, this will translate into higher recycling rates and less contamination in our recycling stream—a win-win for everyone,” Womack said in the statement.
