For residents who would like to reduce their household waste and become better recyclers, they can now look no further than a new app — now available in the City of Coral Springs.
Serving over 3,000 communities across the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, Recycle Coach strives to make the world a greener place by making it easier for people to practice waste mindfulness by connecting residents with local disposal information on desktop, mobile, or through digital assistants.
“Coral Springs is excited to join the Recycle Coach network, which is helping us transform how we communicate with residents about local collection, waste and recycling. said Public Works Director, Rich Michaud, who added the platform includes engagement and educational tools, which assists residents to dispose of waste correctly.
With Recycle Coach, residents can conveniently: 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, including local disposal information and collection requirements for common and uncommon items.
Michaud said ultimately, the service takes the guesswork out of recycling and empowers residents to recycle right.
Residents can now access Recycle Coach from a desktop computer at www.coralsprings.org/recyclecoach or download the Recycle Coach app on Apple or Android mobile devices through the App Store or Google Play.
“The less contamination in our recycling stream benefits the environment and may reduce the fees we pay to recycle.”
