The council’s waste management section now have a fast and reliable way to report fly tipping and request more recycling boxes. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

AppMon gives you the ability to request replacement recycling boxes, nets and caps and report fly tipping 24/7 The new App makes contacting the waste management section quick and easy. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

If you need a replacement recycling box or want to report fly tipping, you no longer need to call the waste management section if you have AppMon on your mobile or tablet. The new app means you can contact the waste management section at your convenience 24/7. The app is free to download from the Apple iTunes store, Google Play store or Windows Phone Store. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Using the app is easy too. If you want to remain anonymous there are a limited number of menu choices on the app, but much more if you create an account by putting your details into it. “We want people to provide their details, so we can sort out their request quickly, either contacting them should they need a response or delivering recycling boxes and caps without having to disturb them. There is also a facility to be anonymous as sometime people don’t wish to be identified when they are reporting fly tipping,” said Elin Owen, Senior Waste Management Officer. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

To report fly tipping simply tap the report fly tipping button. Put your details in if you want the Council to contact you, using the done key at the top to enter details into each field. Then use the next button to move onto further pages. The app will ask you about the waste that has been fly tipped and its location that you can identify by moving a red pin on the map. You can even take a video or a picture that the app will automatically attach to your electronic report. Simply press submit to send the report to the council. They’ll send you a service request number. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

If you are registered with the site you can request a host of council services including replacement recycling boxes, net and caps and even a replacement green bin. Tell the waste management section why you need them with a drop down menu. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

We are already receiving a growing number of requests and reports through the app. If you don’t have a smart phone or prefer talking to our team then the helpdesk is open on weekdays from 9 to 5 and we will be pleased to speak to you. This new service provides another way of reaching us at your convenience and it’s proving popular,” reports Elin. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
