Blacksburg residents can check details for regular and special collections and events for spring and fall cleanup, household hazardous waste collection, e-waste days, and more. My Waste is tailored specifically to the user's neighborhood. Once you have downloaded the app it can be set it up to give regular reminders for any of the town's collection programs. For example, you can set a reminder for the day recycling is collected or set up alerts just for leaf collection, fall and spring clean up, or even if trash/recycling service is cancelled due to weather.
Residents can download the free My Waste app by selecting the Apple or Android icon.More information on the app can be found here: http://m.my-waste.mobi/VA-Blacksburg/ .
The My Waste app was funded by a recycling education grant from the Curbside Value Partnership, (CVP), Connect Education Award Program in 2013. The grant program provides resources to select communities that have been dedicated users of CVP Connect. CVP Connect is a free, online education training tool for recycling coordinators that was launched years ago to help communities be more strategic and effective in the promotion of their residential recycling programs.
