Ratings and Reviews
Not Fit For Purpose
This app is meant to replace the current very reliable weekly text reminder. Recycling & rubbish are collected on alternate weeks in their corresponding containers. The “containers” section states that all the shown containers are provided including black sacks. Either this is incorrect or someone has been getting mine for a number of years.
The collection days can be seen in the “calendar” section and if you click on any of the designated days you can see the type of containers will be collected. Black sacks are not included, may be because I’m not getting any!
You only need to look at the icon to know the UI is dated and very basic.
Very poor implementation
For something so simple this should be 5 stars, but it’s often very unreliable and really gives a poor indication of when your collection is. Having just received 20 notifications every minute due to a “collection incident” I’ve had to disable it and write this review.
I’ve now had to reset the app and it’s stuck loading addresses... and then having finally loaded addresses, it won’t save - so no notifications!!! Useless!!!
it works, but barely. everytime you use the app it initially shows a screen that looks like you need to reconfigure it then it eventually starts working. you cant tell it which pickups are applicable to you personally so it shows ALL for your area. it only shows the next pickup so it is useless if you want to look further ahead than the next one. it doesnt see to give you any alerts which would be very helpful.
