By Caroline Ask, Environmental Compliance & Recycling Manager
How often have you been leisurely enjoying your morning coffee when you suddenly hear a large truck rumbling down your street?
You instantly know what it means — it’s your solid waste or recycling collection day, and you forgot to place your bin at the curb line.
Most of the time, College Station residents do an exceptional job of helping our collections run smoothly, but now it’s even easier with our improved free mobile app, which is called College Station Curbside. It replaces the outdated MyWaste/Recycle Coach app.
College Station Curbside’s straightforward, uncomplicated design makes staying informed about solid waste and recycling collection almost effortless. You can quickly find the garbage, recycling, and bulk/brush pickup collection schedule specific to your address and set the app to remind you of your collection days.
If you don’t have an Apple or Android smartphone, you can use our online My Schedule tool. Through My Schedule, you can sign up to receive waste collection reminders by email, phone, or text message. You can also print or download the schedule into your iCal, Google, or Microsoft Outlook calendar.
You’ll never again forget to put out your garbage, recycling, or bulk/brush items.
And you can enjoy that steaming hot cup of coffee in peace.
