The New BC Recyclepedia Smart Phone App
Finding your closest recycling depot is now at the tips of your fingers with the new BC Recyclepedia smart phone App (http://rcbc.bc.ca/services/recyclepedia-app). This app, developed by The Recycling Council of BC (RCBC), in partnership with the Society for Promoting Environmental Conversation (SPEC), is a simple tool that allows its users to find the nearest drop-off locations and recycling options.
The free app is a mobile version of the existing Recyclepedia service offered on the RCBC webpage and helps users locate over 1,000 drop-off locations and recycling options for over 70 materials – including used oil and antifreeze! Recyclepedia will provide users a list of 10 nearest depots using your phone’s geo-finder, as well directions using Google map and contact information.
Please note, if you are searching for collection facilities accepting more than one material, please consult the RCBC hotline.
To download the Recyclopedia app, visit the iTunes App Store or Android Market!
