RCBC Recyclepedia for your Smart Phone

RCBC Recyclepedia for your Smart Phone

The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) is trying to make recycling even easier.  If you have an IPhone or Android, you are an app away from having all of your recycling options at your fingertips.  

Do you do your running around on the weekends?  Most people do their large projects around their homes outside of typical business hours.  NEAT is a great resource  to call during the week, but the Waste Reduction Office isn't open on the weekend.  If you have access to your computer, prrrdy.com has a great database, but it  isn't the most user friendly on a smart phone (it does work, but it doesn't have a mobile option).  RCBC has made it easier than ever to have those recycling options with you at all times.  Just download the BC Recyclepedia app from your app store.  Then, whether you need to recycle paint or prescriptions, your phone can tell you where to go. 

We have been taking this application for a test run and it seems to be very easy to operate.  The only thing that we noticed is that it does not give our recycling options outside of BC.  There are some items that can be recycled in Grande Prairie, but the Recyclepedia will say that the closest place is in Prince George.  That situation really only effects us in the Peace River region, but we just wanted to point that out. 

So, now that you have this new app, your spring cleaning will be even easier.
