I gave it 5 stars. Wish the app had more information on it. Example, I wanted to get rid of a home printer. Figured I’d recycle it. The app talked about printers and recycling but no dates or further instructions. I ended up calling.

What update ?!

Just opened the App to see if collection is delayed a day. An alert told me my version is obsolete and to please download the update. I deleted the App, searched for Boston Trash Schedule at the App Store and downloaded it. I wonder why it wasn’t one of the regular app updates. Anyway, the latest I could download seems to be the same version as the one I just removed from my iPhone, and I’m getting the same exact alert about it being obsolete and to please download the latest version. What gives?

Thanks Boston for going digital

As a software developer at a local startup, I’m proud to see our city adopt the pace of technology. I’m not going to call the city to find the trash schedule, I’m going to google it.

Thank you and your engineering team for putting this information online in an accessible way (look up by address).

4 stars, since I think your UI and UX could be better. That’s my only feedback. 🙂
