LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--1-800-Recycling.com , an interactive nationwide company dedicated to simplifying and enhancing the consumer recycling experience, has announced the launch of its “My Recycle List” as an app for the Android Market. “My Recycle List” is a user-friendly tool designed to help anyone anywhere participate in the recycling of items they would otherwise throw away.
The first fully comprehensive “all items, all zip codes” recycling app designed for the Android Phone, 1-800-Recycling’s free tool is now available at the Android Zoom Market and enables the user to quickly find recycling locations nearby that accept items the user selects from a list. The app enables the user to easily organize locations by adding them to a personalized list – like an intuitive grocery list for recyclers.
Like 1-800-Recycling’s website and phone system, the My Recycle List app is designed to take the burden out of recycling by making it easy to accomplish recycling goals in the least amount of trips.
The My Recycle List launch on Android is the latest in a series of developments and technological enhancements to 1-800-Recycling’s overall system this summer. In addition to the launch of the Android app, 1-800-Recycling’s phone system now enables the user to enter his or her zip code location and item desired to recycle, and a text message is instantly sent to that user’s phone with the name of the closest recycling center and a link to a Google Map showing how to get there from the user’s present location. The phone system has also been enhanced and includes a Spanish language option as well.
“Having our My Recycle List tool be available to Android users is yet another step forward for our mission to provide tools, through 1-800-Recycling.com, to make the recycling process easier for everyone,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “Now anyone anywhere can be a part of the recycling process – whether you are at home or at work, our site, our phone system and our app are all available, free of charge, to increase accessibility to the recycling process. It used to be a challenge to figure out how and where to recycle unwanted items – now, thanks to the variety of technologies we’ve developed, we are literally bringing simple recycling tools to everywhere life happens.”
1-800-Recycling.com provides users with nationwide outreach to help users find recycling locations nearest to them (every zip code in the country is covered) for whatever it is they wish to recycle.
The new App, the 1-800-Recycling.com website and the 1-800-Recycling phone service all direct users to responsible recyclers of electronics, tires, oil, paint, glass, plastic, wood, mattresses, carpet, junk – basically everything that can be recycled.
