Maidstone residents can now access information on their rubbish and recycling collections on their mobile phones thanks to the new “Recycle for Maidstone” app. 

The app, which is free and available on iPhone and Android devices, allows residents to find out their collection dates, set collection reminders and find out what can be recycled and where around the borough. Users can also report problems to the council – from abandoned vehicles and flytipping to dog fouling and grafitti. 

Maidstone council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Marion Ring, said: “This app means residents have easy access to all of the information that they need about our waste and recycling services, and they can let us know if there’s a problem at the touch of a button to help us keep our borough clean and attractive for everyone.” 

The app is available from the App Store and the Android Google Play Store.
