Are you sitting there feeling guilty of that box that you did not put in the correct bin? Well,

our app will quickly help you fix this problem. Currently, garbage tips are over flowing and

this is because people are too lazy to put their rubbish is the correct bin. Are you one of these

people? Our app provides you with lots of helpful information on how to use a recycling

and compost bin properly. There is also a fun game that helps teach you which bin different

items go in. An amazing bonus, is that our app will remind you when your next council clean-up is! Now that is certainly unique.
