The Recycle Coach application provides recycling information in a clear and concise manner to improve recycling rates as well as successfully engage residents to learn about “Reduce, Re-use and Recycle” principles.

Beyond that, the platform includes engagement and educational tools to help people manage and correctly dispose of their waste,” said Borough Administrator Christina Ariemma.

Residents can access Recycle Coach from their desktop computers, mobile devices, or through digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. By leveraging the power of voice technology, the platform makes it easy for people to get local disposal information for thousands of household items when they need it.
