The Bin-Ovation App now includes MEA residents!

Do you want to know which bin to put your waste in?  Do you forget sometimes to leave your bin out?  Do you need to find a local recycling centre?

​Download the new Bin-ovation app and have all this information for the borough at your fingertips! 

You can also set reminders that tell you which bin goes out on which date, so you won’t need to look out and see what your neighbours are doing!

The bin-ovation app provides:

  • a library of over 300 household items with photographs, instructions, and which bin/recycling centre to dispose of the item in;
  • bin reminders to your phone or tablet, so you never forget to put your bin out;
  • notifications of holiday bin collection timetable changes, straight to your device;
  • useful tips on how to reduce, re-use and recycle, including links to external websites;
  • opening hours and GPS directions to your local recycling centres in the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council area; and
  • contact details for the council.

The Bin-ovation app is available on the Apple App store and the Google Play store for Android. For more information, visit the Apple Store (Apple devices) or Google Play (Android devices).
