Never forget when to put your bins out for collection. Is this week recycling or is that next week? Configure your different bin schedules in the app and then forget about it! Notifications will remind you when it is time to put out each type. Use the Apple Watch App or Widget to quickly see your next collection. Upcoming alerts for bin collections can appear in the Siri Watch face.

Use Siri shortcuts to ask when the next collection dates are for all bin schedules, which bin schedules are due on the next collection date, or when the next collection date is for an individual schedule. Manage shortcuts in Bin Day Alert's settings screen or in the Siri & Search section of Apple's Settings app.

The app supports a wide range of collection schedules, making it suitable for use at home or business premises: a specific day each week; multiple days each week; a specific day every 2, 3, 4 or 5 weeks; or a specific day on one or more weeks of the month.

Each schedule can have up to two alerts. Each alert can either be for the day before or the day of the bin collection. Snooze an alert notification by 15 minutes if you're busy right now, or by 1 day/week if a public holiday has temporarily changed the bin schedule.

Going on holiday? There's a single setting to quickly disable all alerts.

Back up your bin schedules to iCloud, Dropbox etc. for safekeeping. Easily share your bin schedules with neighbors so they don't have to configure the app themselves.

What’s New

Version 5.1

• Improved support for larger Dynamic Type text sizes.

Bin Day Alert does not prompt you for a review. If you find the app useful, please rate or review it in the App Store, or recommend it to family, friends, neighbours and colleagues. This makes a huge difference to me and the future of the app.

Thanks in advance,
