The Union County Board of County Commissioners urges residents to download the Recycle Coach App to get reminded of their curbside recycling schedule, learn about upcoming county recycling events, get advised of any changes or interruptions to service and learn the best ways to recycle.  The free app is designed to help make recycling and solid waste information more accessible to County residents and engage the public in the principles of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.”

Recycle Coach provides accurate, up-to-date information on Union County’s recycling events as well as local recycling schedules in a handy, user-friendly mobile format. 

“Recycle Coach is an excellent opportunity for Union County residents to obtain accurate, up-to-date information on both county recycling events and local recycling schedules with the touch of a button,” said Commissioner Chairman Al Mirabella. “We have partnered with all 21 municipalities on this exciting initiative and are working together to boost participation and improve recycling rates countywide.”

The app provides personalized collection schedules based on place of residence.  Once a resident downloads Recycle Coach, their calendar will list Union County recycling events along with local curbside garbage and recycling schedules.

The app will advise if there are changes in local collection due to holidays, weather or other emergencies.

Recycle Coach also allows users to set up recycling reminders or access recycling information through a “What Goes Where?” search tool.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is the first state to purchase the Recycle Coach app and make it available to all New Jersey residents free of charge.

“By improving recycling rates here in Union County, we will also be contributing to our state’s ongoing commitment as a national leader in recycling,” said Mirabella.
