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, the Shortcuts app on iOS 13, 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 neighbours so they don't have to configure the app themselves.

Bin day sorted

I've had this app for a couple of months now and wanted to say how great it is.
I originally purchased it whilst on a bullet train in China, the app size being so small was the first thing I was impressed with, this guy is a good coder and hasn't bloated up the app with needless code/graphics.
I was originally stuck on how to setup the timings of my 3 bins but the developer (Geoff via email) helped me understand my own bin schedule (now that is above and beyond and I am very grateful).
It's got alerts for my phone and watch and here's the thing it does what it says on the tin, reliable and just works.

As a request It would be great for the app icon to be the colour of my Bin when the alert arrives.

Fantastic app worth the money IMO.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the great review; I'm glad you are finding the app useful. The app's icon is shown in notifications so I can't vary that depending on which bin schedule the notification is for. In fact, a single notification could be referring to multiple bin schedules with different icons/colours. More recent iOS versions do allow developers to provide rich notification content, so there's maybe something I could do there to improve things. I've added it to my todo list to investigate further.

Simple and really useful

Always used to forget it was bin day the next day and remembered too late after seeing dustman taking bins away. This is a really simple app that reminds me night before and on the morning which bin to take out.
