Baltimore city government is making an app available to residents on Monday that’s designed to help make those choices about whether to recycle or throw out an item a bit easier.

The app offers recycling tips to help keep discarded items like paper, cans, cardboard and plastic containers and more properly sorted. It also provides that show when trash and recycling is picked up, and whether there are changes. Plus, there’s a quiz that offers a way to see how well you’re doing.
“Recycle Coach takes the guesswork out of recycling, giving residents a tool to reduce household waste,” said Baltimore City Department of Public Works Director Rudolph Chow. “For Baltimore, this platform will bring increased simplicity to the City’s single-stream recycling program.”
DPW sees the app as a way to make recycling easier, and help encourage those who don’t already recycle to try it, said Jeffrey Raymond, the chief of communications and community affairs for the Baltimore Department of Public Works.
