Nonprofit RecycleCT Foundation launched the RecycleCT Wizard app aimed at promoting sustainability and streamlining recycling for consumers
Accompanied by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Commissioner Katie Dykes, the app was released this morning.
According to the developers, the app will aid consumers in knowing what does and doesn't belong in their recycling bins, as well as give tips on how to reuse materials, contact local recycling coordinators and how to correctly dispose of materials.
The RecycleCT Foundation previously managed a similar, web-based search tool but believes the introduction of the RecycleCT Wizard app will "increase ease and access, likely to double the number of inquiries" their search tool originally received, according to a news release.
