New 'Orange County NC Recycles' App

Orange County Solid Waste has a new app called “Orange County NC Recycles” to assist residents with waste disposal and recycling collection information. Through the app, residents can view their curbside recycling collection calendar and receive reminders to put out their cart. Reminders are available through ticon-iOS OCNCext, email, or phone notifications, calendar reminders, and automated phone calls.

The app is equipped with a material search tool, in which users can look up specific items and learn how to dispose of them properly. The search tool is a great way to help residents improve the quality and quantity of recycling in the County. A separate tab for the Waste and Recycling Centers provides each centers’ location, hours of operation, and available disposal streams.  

Additionally, users can configure notifications to receive urgent alerts, such as inclement weather closures or delays, and information on new Solid Waste events and programs.

Stay up to date with Orange County Solid Waste by downloading the free app. Search "Orange County NC Recycles," in the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
