Portland Unveils New Recycling App to Help Residents Stay in the Know

The City of Portland is making it even easier for residents to stay connected about trash collection and recycling with the new Recycle Portland web-tool and mobile app powered by ReCollect. Never miss your waste collection day again and easily find out what items are recyclable! Sign up now using this customized reminder service. 

Visit our website or search for Recycle Portland in the Apple and Android stores and then search your home address in the new Collection Calendar tool. 

You can then: 

  • Sign up for waste collection reminders and service alerts by email, phone call, and Twitter. 
  • Download your collection schedule into your iCal, Google calendar or Microsoft Outlook calendar. 
  • Print your collection schedule. 

While Portland has a very regular collection schedule compared to other cities, and limited holiday interruptions, this tool will provide alerts for residents when last minute cancellations are made due to severe weather conditions. 

Not sure how to properly dispose of something? Visit PortlandMaine.Gov/Recycling and use Recycle Portland to find out if a material can be reused, recycled, composted or disposed. 

”The residents of our city do a great job recycling and reducing waste,” said Troy Moon, the City’s Sustainability Coordinator. “It’s now even easier to learn about solid waste management in our community with our new online tools and mobile app. Sign up for collection day reminders and never forgot to put out your recycling again!”
