The East Riding waste app
Download the East Riding waste app to search a database of over 10,000 items to see if it can be recycled in your blue bin.
East Riding of Yorkshire council is introducing a new app that:
- allows you to get a reminder about your bin collection dates based on your preferences
- automatically shows any changes to your bin collection dates during holidays or due to bad weather or road closures
- shows what you can put in each bin.
Get the East Riding App from the Apple App Store (external website)
Get the East Riding App from the Google Play Store (external website)
Once you install the app, you will be asked to add your address. The app will then be automatically updated with the new bin collection dates for your property.
