Unsure what goes in each bin, or when your bin day is? The ‘West Northants’ app is now available across West Northants and has a host of helpful information which is available to access on your phone or tablet.

The easy-to-use app provides a search function to find out how you can recycle or dispose of your waste, making sure the right stuff goes in the right bin, helping to avoid contamination. Simply type in the item you’re looking to recycle, and it will tell you how best to recycle or dispose of it.

You can set reminders the day before your bin collection day and receive notifications on service changes in your area, meaning you won’t miss out on helpful information. As well as stay up to date with Council news, such as reminders to subscribe to garden waste or when your annual collection calendar is available for the upcoming year.

There is a handy feature which can help you find out the opening times and location of the facilities in your area, including the nearest car park, household waste and recycling centre, public toilets and food bank. You can also use it to find the closest place to grab a bite to eat and what their food hygiene rating is.

With more features being developed in the coming months, the app will continue to expand to meet the needs of residents.

Free to download, search ‘West Northamptonshire Council’ on the app store on your mobile or tablet, to stay up to date.
