We’ve all forgotten to put our bin out at some point. You’re lying in bed in the morning and you hear the familiar sound of the bin wagon in the street. You dash downstairs in your dressing gown and run after the wagon, dragging your bin behind you in the hope you can catch them up.
OK, maybe you don’t actually do that. But you need never forget your bin day again if you download our mobile app.
You can get a reminder from the Bradford Council app the evening before your bin is due out. You’ll get the alert at about tea time telling you that your general waste, recycling, or garden waste are due to be collected the next day.
Other alerts – job vacancies and school closures
You can also get alerts for new Council job vacancies and unscheduled school closures. We are currently working on more alerts for the app too. If you sign up for updates from this blog, we’ll let you know when we add new features to the app.
Where to download our app
If you have an iPhone or an iPad, you can download the Bradford Council app from the Apple App Store. If you have an Android smartphone or tablet, you can download the app from the Google Play Store.
The Bradford Council website has more information about what you can do with our app.
Have you used our app? Is there anything else you would like it to do? If so, leave a comment below, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

We are working with the Telegraph & Argus newspaper to raise funds for a memorial to the Bradford Pals and other troops from the city who fought and died in the Battle of the Somme almost one hundred years ago.
As the Bradford district marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One, we are asking residents to donate to the Honour the Pals appeal.
It is hoped this memorial will be unveiled in France on the centenary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme on 1 July 2016 as a lasting reminder of the sacrifice made by these World War One heroes.
Having a memorial in France is important not least for educating visitors, including school children, about the immense sacrifice made by the city’s young men on the battlefields of World War One.
How you can donate
If you wish to make a contribution to the appeal, you can donate online. If you would rather donate by cheque, please make the cheque payable to Honour the Pals Appeal. Send your cheque, with your name, address and contact details to:
Honour the Pals Appeal
Telegraph & Argus
Alternatively, hand your cheque in at the Telegraph & Argus office, City Hall, in Bradford or Keighley Town Hall.
The Bradford Council website has more information about the Honour the Bradford Pals appeal.

Just one month ago our district was showcased to an international audience as the Grand Depart of the Tour de France came through the district.
The world’s biggest cycling race came through Burley-in-Wharfedale, Ilkley and Addingham on Saturday, 5 July and Addingham, Silsden, Keighley, Cross Roads, Haworth and Oxenhope on Sunday, 6 July. Addingham was the only village in Yorkshire to have the Tour visit twice, as it came through on both the Saturday and the Sunday.
