Waterloo Garbage & Yard Waste App

June 21st, 2018 by Jack Mitchell

Inspired by Google’s 20% policy, BitBakery Labs is where we solve our own problems and experiment with new technologies.

We built the Waterloo Garbage & Yard Waste app because too much yard waste was out on the wrong days. We wanted to help Waterloo Region – and ourselves – build a cleaner community with better yard waste (and now garbage) management. The app uses four principles: specificity, simplicity, reliability, and anonymity.

"I was always surprised by how many people had their yard waste at the curb out on the wrong days"
- Wes Worsfold

Here’s how it works:

      1. Download and install the app. Launch it

      2. Select your city/township and the pickup date

      3. Get notified the weekend and the night before pickup

The Garbage & Yard Waste App is reliable, specific to our community and doesn’t need any account. 1500 Waterloo Region households use the app making local living easier.

Download our app for free on iOS and Google Play, and spread the word!
