Get bin day reminders on your phone

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.
