Stay on top of your waste

By Oliver Lees

A new app has launched in the Macedon Ranges to help users stay on top of their waste.

The MRSC waste app has been designed by Macedon Ranges council to enable residents to quickly find the most up-to-date information on what bins go out and to guide users to use the correct bins.

The app replaces the current Loddon Mallee waste app which will soon expire.

Macedon Ranges assets and operations director Shane Walden said the new app keeps all the features of the old one.

“You can also customise the level of alert you would like by turning on push notifications for bin collection and public holiday reminders,” Mr Walden said.

“It has been developed to assist people in making quick waste and recycling decisions to reduce contamination and increase recycling levels.”

The app allows users to create a personalised bin collection calendar, as well as an A to Z list of how to dispose of materials.

The app is available for both Apple and Android users.
