Not helpful

There is no up-to-date information on collection of garbage or recyclables during or after a snow storm. This means that New Yorkers have to put out their garbage and recyclables on the usual schedule and hope that they get picked up the next day. If not, they have to drag them back in and put them out again the next night so they don’t get a ticket from the department of sanitation.

Getting Better

Updated Review:
February 2021 I noticed that in my area the app is notifying me of when our next pickup will be. That’s great! I just hope that the snow will not cause too many problems. Thank Heavens we have these men to help us. My Blessings to them. Stay safe guys! And thanks! Also a big thanks to all the developers! Happy New Year!
Older Review:
I am very happy to have this app. It’s very useful and it helps to keep me aware of when my recycles and garbage will be collected by sending me a notification.
But there’s more to this app than that. There are resources which advise you how and where to donate the things you no longer need, which is a great way to help protect the environment.
This app also keeps me connected to my neighborhood resources; it’s very informative. I’m very glad to have it and it works great on my iPhone!
Thanks from the bottom of my Heart!

Needs Review

The app serves it purpose to notify when your regular trash pickup is scheduled and has a calendar that lists events.
It should be more. I wanted to drop off electronics at drop off site and couldn’t determine when I would be allowed. If you want to be a scheduling app you need to be able display schedules for uncommon events also. The five star was to get someone’s attention. Please redesign app so that it is more informative.
