Have you got the Myhyndburn app yet?   It’s certainly proving popular and you may be one of more than two thousand residents who have already downloaded it to make it easier to manage your household waste and report fly tipping.

Using mobile technology is changing the way we deliver our services, we’ve been using it in our refuse and recycling wagons for a couple of years, cutting out paper and making us more efficient.  Now this handy app will send bin and recycling day reminders to you, at a time that you set, so it could even be the night before.

We’re hoping that even more people use the app after their spring cleaning to book free collections for bulky waste. Now we are collecting metal, wood and mattresses, more bulky waste is being recycled than ever before and each household entitled to one collection per calendar month up to a maximum of six items.

The Myhyndburn app is free, available to download on most phones and devices and besides allowing you to book bulky collections you can also use it to report fly tipping and report missing bins.

We receive nearly 30,000 requests and reports for waste services every year and this app gives you access to our services 24/7.  With just a few clicks you can book a bulky waste collection, and send your request straight to our crew. You’ll get an email or text message when we’ve done the job and you can track your request online anytime.

Also having our My.hyndburn app on your phone app means that you can report fly tipping to us as and when you see it and help us to keep Hyndburn clean and tidy.

Download the app now, it’s available on the Apple App Store or Google Play, or to use it via a laptop or PC go directly to the website www.hyndburnbc.gov.uk/apps.
