Residents of Mid Ulster could be in with a chance of winning a Samsung Tablet when they download the Council’s new multi-purpose Bin-ovation app.
Available free on smart phones and tablets, the new app provides clarity on how to treat thousands of items of household waste, with information on everything from what can go into blue, brown and black bins to a handy bin collection day reminder service which residents can set up to suit their own collection schedule.
Using the latest App technology, residents can also get GPS directions to their nearest recycling centre, find opening times, including any changes, with all information tailored to the Mid Ulster region.
There is no limit to the number of devices the app can be downloaded to.
To be entered into the draw to win the Tablet, simply download the app, go to ‘Extras’, select ‘Contact Council’ and click on ‘Enter me in the draw’ to submit your contact details (email address or telephone number).
Existing users can also enter the draw by following the same instructions.
Speaking about the ‘Bin-Ovation’ app and free draw, Deputy Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Sharon McAleer, said: “I would urge everyone to download this valuable tool and you never know, there may even be a free Tablet in it for you!”
Emphasising that the app will evolve and also has the capacity to provide real-time information, Councillor Cuthbertson, Chair of the Council’s Environment Committee, said: “The Bin-ovation app can be utilised in so many ways – whether it’s to communicate changes to bin collections, updates on recycling, news and events or even just to find out which bin to put out on which day!
Cllr. Cuthbertson added: “It is an invaluable tool for keeping waste and recycling issues to the fore and I would encourage everyone to download it to their smartphones or tablets today and submit their details to enter the draw for a free Tablet.”
