Recycling Made Easy

Posted on Mar 29, 2023 by Theresa Lehman

Do you ever find yourself struggling to sort your recycling from your trash? Are you wondering why recycling rules are constantly changing? We’ve all been there. Good news! There are apps that make recycling simple and easy to understand.

Tri-County Recycling recently partnered with Wisconsin-based company Betterbin to provide localized recycling guidelines that are relevant and convenient to all residents within Brown, Outagamie, and Winnebago counties. Within the app simply scan the UPC barcode on any household product and get detailed recycling and disposal instructions that match local recycling guidelines.

Scrapp is a global recycling app that educates users on how to properly recycle any household product. With Scrapp’s mission of educating and empowering users, the more products you scan the better recycler you’ll become. Globally we can stop plastic pollution from entering our oceans.

In Scrapp, simply scan a UPC barcode and the app will display simple instructions on how to dispose of it, such as: recycle, do not recycle, or sort packaging. The app also provides step-by-step instructions on how to break down products and packaging so they can be properly recycled. Scrapp will save and apply your local recycling rules to the instructions it provides you.

With apps like Betterbin and Scrapp, you’ll feel like a recycling hero!
