Can The iPhone Help You Reduce Waste? Yes It Can!

As we know councils are pulling out all the stops now when it comes to waste reduction.

For example the waste disposal authority have funded a number of community groups to facilitate them in spreading the word about waste. As it happens I helped out the Monton group with some speed stuffing of recycling leaflets in bags last Friday as part of this initiative.

The latest news is that Recycle for Greater Manchester (R4GM) has turned to technology to help them with the war on waste. That's right, R4GM has hired an ecommerce company from Sale to create an Iphone app to help the good people of Greater Manchester find their nearest HWRC, bike re-use schemes and how to reduce junk mail, food waste and packaging.

This is a marvelous idea. I have been on numerous waste reduction campaigns where leaflets were used (see first paragraph) and if this can be reduced all the better.

I see that the app has already received a 5* review from Vizzzzz who claims it is a useful app - nice work Vizzzzz, hopefully that will encourage more people to download it!

I would be really interested to download the app.... but I have an Android phone - I wonder if they will do an Android version?

If you download it please let us know what you think of it in the comments - I'm dying to know!

Take care,
