Love this app

This has taken all of the confusion about knowing what to do with my garbage! It makes me aware of just how much waste I produce that isn’t recyclable. I am more careful about my package buying decisions. And it’s super easy to use!

This is so helpful! Though I live in a different county, wish this was available through all counties! Should be mandated for the whole State of California to do as Monterey has provided!

At your fingertips

Where did I put the flyer that came in the mail???!!!

I always KNOW where my phone is so the answer to “Can I recycle this?” is always at my fingertips.
