3 Awesome things you can do with the ‘Southampton Recycling App’

The Southampton Recycle App does so much more than just finding out when your next bin-day is. It’s actually a really useful tool to get in touch and stay informed with the City Council for a wide range of services. For example you can report fly tipping and graffiti, find recycling locations and check which items belong in each collection bin.

If you live in Southampton, it’s an essential download. Here are our highlights.

1. Report Fly-tipping, Graffiti, Litter or even Roadkill in a matter of seconds.

Our communities should be clean, but if you spot something that isn’t right, you can take a photo within the app, and you’re location is determined automatically. Then just provide a brief description and your name. Your report is sent instantly. In our test, we received an email from Southampton City Council the next day and noticed the rubbish we reported in Shirley was removed within 48 hours. Impressive, but lets hope the council can keep up.


2. Can i put that in my bin?

Unsure if you can recycle Engine oil, Batteries, Rubble or your embarrassing Cliff Richard vinyl collection? Use the handy checker to see if you can use your own bins, otherwise you’ll get a map to your nearest recycling centre so anything can be disposed of safely.


3. When is my next bin day?

You can check your collection days for household waste, recycling, garden waste and glass. You can even set a reminder on your phone so you don’t wake up in the middle of the night and take out the bins in your pyjamas.


You can download the Southampton Recycle App for Free from the App Store (iPhone and iPad) and from Google Play (Android)

We asked for Luke to come in for a training day with our staff since we were taking over the running of a Mac office and all had very little experience of using them. We found the half a day of training exceptionally useful. We were taught basic things, however we could already see that they would greatly increase our productivity and understanding of how to get the best out of using the Mac computers. The session was the best of both worlds of being taught the basics that we were lacking but without going too basic and wasting time. Will definitely be getting Luke back in again soon!

Thank you Luke for sorting out all my Apple issues! Luke was able to set up my multiple computers, phones and iPads with home and business email and calendar accounts. I have used his services multiple times and he always knows what to do, from printers, wifi and fix any issues whenever my Mac breaks or I need help with Office apps. Highly recommended.
