Super helpful app!

We were very glad to discover this app -- it reminds us when to put out our recycling and yard waste, and keeps us informed when weather or COVID force changes to the schedule. We feel better knowing that the city knows when our garbage hasn't been picked up, and that it's being addressed.

Let’s play Roulette!!

I have tried to use this app. It has potential, but it is not accurate at all for anything other then green can trash. Recycle might get picked up on assigned day, but most likely day after. Yard waste was the ONLY alert that worked but....psych your yard waste is going to sit at curb for several weeks. I have reported just 1 bulky item in last 6 years of living in Durham. Almost, 2 months now and still sitting at curb. No feedback, no pickup. Why am I paying for any of these services???
