Benefits to Council

Increase Communication Effectiveness


Transitioning Councils to digital community communication


  • Digitalise all existing printed marketing material related to waste management in your community, included in a customised page especially for your Council
  • Instant, two way communications direct to the mobile phone of your community members
  • Push notifications keep community engaged, reminding them to put the correct bins out each week
  • Community member reporting of issues such as illegal dumping direct from their mobile phones
  • Community member booking a kerbside pick up

Whilst communications through expensive letterbox drops has been the norm in the 21st century, all communications from newspapers to bank statements have transitioned to digital communications through mobile based applications.

It is estimated that over 20% of the community access the internet and communications exclusively through their mobile phones. This statistic is rising sharply, with consumers compartmentalising their lives, based on the devices they use. Council emails will likely fall into spam, social or promotions filters, whilst RecycleSmart App push notifications go direct to their mobile.

RecycleSmart is a fast, effective and easy to use communication tool that cuts through the clutter.

Reduce Communication Costs and Administrative Burdens


Simplify communication, education and administration


  • Increase communication efficiency
  • Automate announcements to residents
  • Update and communicate new Council information & schedules in seconds

The RecycleSmart App is an essential part of the communication mix for councils to connect with community. Built with council requirements in mind, using the App and website is and an extremely cost effective way to receive and log community communications with council regarding waste matters, manage auto-responders, and meet communication and reporting obligations.

Following the transition to App based communication seen by banks and newspapers, we anticipate, that as engagement grows, councils will save thousands in printing, distribution and administration costs associated with community communication.

Now, community enquiries can be quickly and easily directed to RecycleSmart, which provides all Australian councils and community members access to our free digital tool that answers the old age questions ‘how do I recycle this?’ for over 250 items.
