The Leeds bins mobile app is a popular product that is simple to use, free of charge and powered by open data provided by Leeds City Council. Users are able to see upcoming collections, save the dates to their device’s calendar and specify when they are reminded of collections.
At WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2018, Daniel Billingsley’s presentation, on behalf of Imactivate and ODI Leeds, demonstrated how the app has allowed the council to save money by reducing the frequency of traditional bin-day mail outs, enables local authorities to reach people in a new way, and can be used to assist with waste campaigns such as promoting recycling. Daniel also discussed future developments such as the possibility of using the app to inform residents about disruptions to their waste collection services.
