Council introduces new app for waste management

Published: 4th February 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is pleased to introduce Bin-ovation, a new App that is revolutionising recycling for households and local Councils across Northern Ireland.

Free to download, Bin-ovation gives residents absolute clarity on how to treat hundreds of household waste items and gives instant access to waste and recycling information.

Available on smart phones and tablets the bin-ovation app provides:

  • Clarity on over 300 household items including which bin the item should be placed in or if you can take it to your local recycling centre
  • Calendar and a set reminder of which day your bin is collected to ensure you present the right bin at the kerbside for collection
  • Opening hours and GPS directions to your local recycling centres
  • News on your current and new collections including up to date information on daily changes to services
  • Information on your recycling services and tips on how to reduce, reuse and recycle

Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Cllr Thomas O Reilly said “Bin-ovation is an innovative app that assists residents throughout the Fermanagh and Omagh district to reduce, reuse and recycle better, protecting our environment and reducing the costs associated with waste disposal. The app gives us the opportunity to communicate directly with our residents on issues that can really make a difference. I would encourage residents to download the app which gives instant access to a wide range of waste and recycling information”

To download the app go to the App store or Google Play and type “Bin-ovation” on your android or smart phone and follow the download instructions. Note for IPad users select IPhone only when searching.
