Muhlenberg Township’s Recycle Coach™ app puts recycling and garbage collection information on your smartphone

Easy-to-find information when and where you want it.

If you are one of the growing number of people who have a smartphone or tablet, you can download Muhlenberg Township’s Recycle Coach™app that puts garbage, recycling, special waste collection details and more at your fingertips, anytime you want them.

Muhlenberg Township’s Recycle Coach™is pleased to announce that we’ve just launched a mobile and web app that contains all of the information people need to know, tailored specifically to our township, about our residential garbage and recycling services and the Berks County Solid Waste Authority,” said Joe Mench, Director of IT & Communications.

The mobile and web app, developed by Recycle Coach, provides residents with a full range of information that is normally on the website or in the collection schedule that Muhlenberg Townshipdistributes. Now residents don’t have to go hunting for the printed schedule or be sitting in front of their computers. Instead, by downloading Recycle Coach™,Muhlenberg Township’s residents can check details for regular and special collections and events for household hazardous waste or e-waste days, and more.

Special features of the Muhlenberg Township’s Recycle Coach™ mobile and web app include a search function that lets residents quickly find information about what to do with a regular or out-of-the-ordinary item, plus there are tips for reducing and recycling waste in apartment and condo buildings.  “Residents simply download the app and set up their customized reminders. This includes not only the Township collections, but the larger special collections held several times a year by the Berks County Solid Waste Authority,” Mench said.

“This is an efficient and easy way for us to connect with residents about our trash and recycling program. We will be able to update the mobile and web app as necessary throughout the year so it will always be current. Residents will never forget a collection day and that should lead to increased recycling rates which is our goal” Mench said. 

Muhlenberg Township is adding the Recycle Coach™ mobile and web app to its communication outreach activities. The Township will continue to distribute printed materials and have information on the website for residents who prefer traditional promotional and educational materials.

The Recycle Coach™ app is free to download and it is available from the iTunes Store and Google Play
