Introducing the Recyclops Waste Wizard

Recyclops continues to innovate solutions for sustainability. We believe that recycling and sustainable options should be accessible to everyone, which is why we are so excited to announce the new Recyclops Waste Wizard.

The Recyclops Waste Wizard follows our goals of pairing technology with recycling, allowing our customers to gain insights on what should be recycled and easier access to their pick up information.

What is the Recyclops Waste Wizard?

The Recyclops Waste Wizard is a new tool available through the My Recyclops mobile app or our website. Recyclops customers will now be able to find their pick up schedule, sign up for pick up reminders and even be notified of any service changes through the My Recyclops mobile app and Recyclops Waste Wizard. These features allow our customers to have better access to information and follow our core value of transparency.

Learn more information about Recyclops and our core values here.

Once customers sign up for reminders through the Recyclops Waste Wizard, they will begin to receive customized reminders of their collection services. The new Recyclops Waste Wizard offers more than just service reminders. The tool also allows customers to learn what can and cannot be recycled and where they should be disposing of their waste.

When customers do not know where their waste or other potentially recyclable items can be disposed, they wishcycle. Wishcycling, which means trying to recycle items that you hope are recyclable, leads to waste contaminating recyclable materials, lowering the efficiency of the recycling process.

With the Recyclops Waste Wizard, we offer a perfect solution by allowing customers to instantly get proper address-specific instructions about which bin to use or where the item can be disposed of. The Waste Wizard is great for anyone who has been confused or is unsure about what’s recyclable in their area.

Learn more about where your recycling goes on the Recyclops blog.
