Collection simply checks when your rubbish and/or recycling bin is being collected based on your Auckland region address. You can also save an address for your convenience and set one-off reminders on multiple addresses, handy for public holiday weeks.
Gotta try things to throw 'em out!
Recently added ad placement was recognised as a hindrance so it was trashed – never to be recycled! Collection's sole objective is to bring convenience to Aucklanders and if anything get in the way of that, it's got to go.
Other fixes were made and some bugs found their way back home in this update:
- Fixed an issue where app would crash when the search field is empty
- Fixed "Rate this app" action to properly show the App Store window
- Placeholder text on search field was fixed for better visibility
Collection is built and maintained by a one-man band. Your ratings, reviews and feedback means a lot to keep the engines running.
Thank you for your continued support and your patience keeping up with its flaws. Stay well and safe Auckland!

great app. latest changes a shame
I’ve always relied on this app, its very handy. unfortunately the latest changes of pushing ads at us is a step too far for me. Found myself searching the app store today for an alternative option. Have you considered a minimal charge for an ad-free experience? I’d have no issues paying a little bit for such a handy app. thanks.

Hi RenaNZ, thank you so much for the feedback. I sincerely apologise for the disappointment you have felt towards the latest changes. I have been questioning it myself also! Sole objective of this app is to bring convenience for Aucklanders and if anything gets in the way of that, it needs to go. I have received feedback about this from others and I hear you as well – new ad placement will be removed in the next update. I’m very grateful to hear that Collection is able to bring that convenience to you. If you have any suggestions, comments or other feedback, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. Thank you again. Stay safe and well.
Loved the app. I appreciate you need to make bank, but since the latest release there has been a permanent unclearable notification. I presume this is a ‘bug’ to make me open the app and score you more ad revenue. Aside from that, the banner ad I can deal with, pop up ad in my way during use not so much. Uninstalling. We had a good run.

Hi Serious_Steve, I’m very sad to see you go! Just to let you know what happened, notification badge was placed in error when prompt (and to my fault, somewhat rushed) response to the alert level changes were sent out last week. And quite inconveniently, it can only be remedied with another push notification. I’ve been a bit hesitant to send out another one around this time. As we can all agree, notification can become quite intrusive when sent out in quick succession especially without true function. I’m looking for opportunities to fix this, hopefully with a good news! I can assure you, I had zero intentions of doing this on purpose nor did I have ad revenue in mind. I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and any disappointment you may have felt towards Collection due to this error. And I hear you on the pop-up ad as I’ve been questioning it myself - this will be removed on the next update. Again, I’m deeply saddened to see you go. It will be great to have you back in the future. If you have further comments or feedback, please feel free to get in touch at email@example.com Thank you for your honest feedback and for sticking around this far!
Make sure you update
Much better since the update. Great response from the developer to fix an issue.
