iRecycle®, powered by Earth911, launched an upgrade to help consumers have a greener holiday. Their new app helps consumers learn how to properly dispose of unwanted holiday leftovers.
With nearly half a million downloads, iRecycle is already the premiere application for local disposal information. Earth911’s mobile application is based on Earth911’s one-of-a-kind recycling directory, with over 1.5 million local recycling and proper disposal opportunities for 350 different materials in every U.S. ZIP code. Users input a ZIP code, address, city or their current location and a material to find the most convenient solution for disposal.
“iRecycle is a great example of how Earth911 is moving recycling forward. With nearly half a million downloads already, we’re headed for an even more explosive release with this new version,” said Corey Lambrecht, President of Earth911, in a press release. “We’re leading the charge to get consumer products recycled by using our data – the best single resource available to make this a reality.”
According to the press release, the new version of iRecycle features:
- iRecycle iOS v2.5.1 – optimized for iPhone 5, Retina iPad, and iOS 6
- iRecycle Android v1.5 – optimized for Android devices. Support for many screen resolutions, including tablets
- iRecycle now has a single focus: finding recycling centers
- Vibrant color display to help distinguish categories
- Social sharing of recycling listings is even easier with Facebook, Twitter, SMS or email
“Knowing what to recycle and where to recycle it can be a challenge but the iRecycle app makes it easy and intuitive,” said Marci VerBrugge-Rhind, spokesperson for Sprint, in a press statement. “We’re excited to see that Earth911 continues to refine this utility and provides an even better experience for our customers who are looking for recycling information on their wireless device, especially our customers who are using the Sprint Green ID Pack that enables several apps for greener living like iRecycle.”
