Council helps make recycling easy with launch of new App

Derry City and Strabane District Council has become the latest local Council to promote recycling by implementing Bin-Ovation; a new free App that is revolutionising recycling for households and local councils across Northern Ireland.

Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Elisha McCallion, and Council’s Waste and Recycling Officer, Julie Hannaway attended the launch of the App at the Guildhall today.

“This App could eventually save millions of pounds annually never mind the benefits to our local environment,” said the Mayor. “Few people are aware that if a recycling truck is contaminated by the wrong item, the entire load may have to go to landfill adding significantly at an additional cost of several hundreds of pounds – Bin-Ovation could change all that by helping our local house holders to easily check what goes where.”
