LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 1-800-Recycling.com, an interactive nationwide company dedicated to simplifying and enhancing the consumer recycling experience, has announced the launch of a new, free recycling app designed to make the recycling process easier than ever.
Available via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the app (1800recycling.com/mobile/) helps users quickly find nearby recycling locations. Formerly known as “My Recycle List,” the new app combines the best of My Recycle List’s features with a brand new user interface as well as a host of new and intuitive features to make the most complete recycling app available.
The free app is still the easiest way to find convenient drop-off locations and organize recyclables quickly and effectively. Users can even share and rate their recycling experiences to help others recycle better.
The most commonly recycled materials are grouped into nine categories for quick selection: Electronics, Plastic, Metal, Paper, Glass, Household, Hazardous, Automobile and Yard Waste.
“Having our new 1-800-Recycling mobile app be available at iTunes and Google Play means heightened accessibility for iPhone and Android users and yet another step forward for the 1-800-Recycling mission to make the recycling process easier for everyone,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “Anyone can be a part of the recycling process – whether you are at home or at work. Our site, our phone system and our new app are all available, free of charge, to increase accessibility to the process of recycling. It used to be a challenge to figure out how and where to recycle unwanted items – now, thanks to the variety of technologies we’ve developed, we are literally bringing simple recycling tools to everywhere that life happens.”
Much like 1-800-Recycling’s website and phone system, the 1-800-Recycling app is designed to take the burden out of doing the right thing with unwanted junk by making it easy to accomplish recycling goals in the fewest amount of trips. The app directs users to responsible recyclers of electronics, tires, glass, plastic, wood, mattresses, carpet, junk – basically everything that can be recycled.
“1-800-Recycling adds thousands of new locations each year,” Shegerian added. “We’re always looking for new recycling outlets in every category and encourage recycling businesses of all sizes to contact us to partner up with 1-800-Recycling and achieve more visibility through our system.”
Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s largest privately held recycler of electronic waste, is R2 and e-Stewards certified to de-manufacture and recycle every type of electronic waste in an environmentally friendly manner. ERI processes more than 200 million pounds of electronic waste annually at seven locations in seven states.
