Rutherford Launches Recycle Coach
Posted Thursday April 25, 2019

Rutherford Launches Recycle Coach 

For residents looking to reduce their household waste and become better recyclers, look no further than the Recycle Coach platform—now available in Rutherford.  

Residents can access Recycle Coach from their desktop computers, mobile devices, or through digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. By leveraging the power of voice technology, the platform makes it easy for people to get local disposal information for thousands of household items when they need it. And the best part: it’s absolutely free.  

With Recycle Coach, residents can:  

• Stay organized with custom curbside collection and events calendars 

• Receive collection reminders and real-time updates on service disruptions  

• Become recycling experts with a comprehensive "What Goes Where?" search tool, including local disposal information and collection requirements for common and uncommon items 

• Take the “What Type of Recycler Are You?” quiz for useful recycling tips and tricks 

• Use the problem-reporting tool, equipped with geolocation, to notify municipal customer services about issues like missed collections  

The service takes the guesswork out of recycling, empowering residents to make smarter disposal decisions and take an active approach to reducing household waste. For Rutherford, this can help increase recycling rates and decrease contamination in the community’s recycling stream.  Become a better recycler today by downloading the Recycle Coach app for free at the iTunes Store and Google Play.
