CITY OFFERS "RECYCLE COACH" APP

Homepage Highlight Template Hurricanes

The City of Portland has launched the Recycle Coach app to help residents keep track of their trash, recycle, and bulk-item collections. The app lets users set reminders to put the trash and/or recycle carts out, as well as reminders about bulk-item collection, according to the designated collection schedules. Residents can choose to be notified by text or email—either on an on-going or a one-time basis. The program also allows the City to send reminders about holiday schedules and real-time service delay notifications.  

Recycle Coach takes the guesswork out of recycling in the “What Goes Where” search tool featured in the app. The program includes information about hundreds of common and uncommon items, and whether they’re recyclable and how to recycle them. Simply type in the name of the item and the app provides the information. There is also a problem-reporting tool, equipped with geolocation, to report issues like a missed collection or other issues.  

To access the app, search for the Recycle Coach app in Google Play or the Apple Store.google play apple store

Once the app is downloaded to your device, search for PORTLAND, TEXAS. Then enter your address and set your reminders according to your preference.

The app features a banner photo taken by Portland resident Naomi Clarke. Ms. Clarke’s photo won the Picture Portland photography contest last fall.
