Milton Keynes Council wanted to make it easier for residents to know when, what and where to recycle.
We helped them out by creating Recycle for MK, an iOS and Android app that keeps users up-to-date with collections, sending out notifications on collection day (particularly handy on bank holidays!) and allowing the Council to communicate any issues with the system or changes to the timetable.
Since its release, the app has received over 10,000 downloads and has more subscribers than both the Council’s email and text notification services. What’s more, the Council now receives far fewer calls and enquiries from residents about their recycling, allowing staff to focus their time and effort on other, more exciting things!
