It’s quick and easy, which your residents will love.

As the resident begins to type their material, the Waste Wizard will “predict” the entry, offering residents helpful suggestions.

Waste Sorting Game

Are you looking for a fresh way to educate your residents and customers about proper waste sorting? Would you like to know which items confuse and confound people?

With playful visuals and charming sounds, ReCollect‘s new, interactive Waste Sorting Game is a great addition to your outreach programs.

Players sort materials into various waste streams. As a reward for successfully completing each level, the player gets to build a digital park.

Special Collection Service

It'€™s easy for residents to schedule a collection for items like sofas, fridges, tree trunks, brush, mattresses, electronics and household hazardous waste.

Residents and customers can select the items they’d like collected, plus select the date of their collection.

The resident receives an email confirmation of their collection along with any set-out requirements, and the pick up date is added to their ReCollect collection calendar.

The Special Collection Service product can be used on its own, or integrated with ReCollect'€™s Collection Calendar web app and mobile app.

Mobile Waste & Recycling Apps

ReCollect mobile apps give you a new way to reach and delight your residents.

We make the best mobile app because ReCollect is the only native app for waste management — meaning it has the responsiveness and sleek experience your residents expect.

Your mobile app can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store and Android Play Store.

  • Get reminders

    Residents can subscribe to weekly email, phone, Twitter or text message reminders, plus they get to pick the date and time of the reminder! Reminders shift to account for holidays, and remind residents only about what is being picked up that week.

  • Get a calendar

    Residents can print a PDF of the calendar specific to their address. They can also download their collection schedule into their personal digital calendar (Microsoft Outlook, iCal, Google calendar).

  • Add educational messaging

    You can add educational messaging that residents will see or hear in their reminders. These messages can encourage recycling habits and proper sorting, provide seasonal tips or information about upcoming environmental events.

  • Educate residents

    Your job of educating residents becomes even easier with simple editing tools if you want to add new materials, waste streams or depots.

  • Getting started

    ReCollect has a list of thousands of items to help you get started.

    Analytics help you understand what materials residents are consistently searching for so you can address them in your promotion and education efforts.

  • Integrate with your system

    When a resident makes a request using ReCollect's Special Collection Service, that request can be sent directly into your existing ticketing system. We integrate with all leading scheduling and routing systems. If you don't have a system for scheduling collections, we can provide that too.

  • Decrease call volumes

    Traditionally, residents have to call their municipality or hauler to arrange on-call collection. With ReCollect's Special Collection Service, your call volumes can be decreased!

Why residents love ReCollect

  • I like ReCollect so much I input my teenage son’s cell number. A text reminder is much better than me nagging. I don’t think he’s appreciated the gesture quite as much as my neighbours who thought that was brilliant.

  • I used to forget garbage day even when I was checking the calendar the city sends. But with ReCollect reminders, I haven’t forgotten one yet.

    Happy Resident
