A free app which will advise Cardiff residents on the type of waste to put out for collection is now available to download. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Binfo App is compatible with all tablet devices and smartphones and once postcode details have been entered it will remind users about the type of waste that will be collected in their area that week. The app will also provide guidance on the correct content for each type of waste container and also advise residents about disruption to services due to Bank Holidays. Users can also use the app to set collection reminder alerts at a time that suits them. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Bob Derbyshire said: “As more and more people now get their news from smartphones and tablets we thought it was time to embrace this technology when it came to providing information about our household waste collections. However, I am aware that some people may not have access to either a smartphone or tablet device and so therefore the current Tidy Text service will continue to be available to current subscribers. In the future we are also looking at introducing an email reminder service which alongside existing collection calendars and the information on our website will ensure that waste collection information is available via the broadest range possible.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The app compliments an array of reminder services currently available and next month a new email service will also be added. These services are accessible via the following webpage: and current subscribers of Tidy Text will receive instructions on how to remain on this service. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Residents can download the Binfo App today from their normal provider by searching for “Binfo Cardiff” in the search engine. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
