The Town of Rutherfordton launched Recycle Coach™, a mobile and web app that contains trash and recycling schedules tailored to individual addresses. On the free mobile app, residents can view/export schedules and set up automatic reminders right on their smartphones. 

The web app has also been added to the city’s main Facebook page.

The Recycle Coach™ app is free to download and it is available from the App Store and Google Play.

It’s important to note that the Town’s collection schedules are not changing, nor can residents schedule a time for trash and recycling collection. The Recycle Coach™ app is designed to make it easier for residents to remember when to place trash and recycling on the curb for pickup.
