TROY, NY (August 18, 2021) – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the launch of the ‘CleanUp Troy’ mobile app, part of the City’s ongoing efforts to provide Troy residents with information and resources on City recycling and waste management services, and encourage the public to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials whenever possible.
Using the ‘CleanUp Troy’ app, Troy residents who use City recycling and garbage services can enter their address to view their collection calendar. Users can also choose to receive push notifications about changes in their weekly recycling and trash pickup schedule. The app also features a search feature called “Waste Wizard” which residents can use to search disposal methods for products and materials they may be unsure of.
Mayor Madden said, “We’re excited to roll out the new ‘CleanUp Troy’ mobile app, the latest in ongoing education and outreach efforts around recycling opportunities and solid waste management services in our community. This app is a digital resource designed to help inform and engage our community on available recycling and trash collection services, putting the latest information at the fingertips of residents, businesses, and families. I encourage all residents to download today and get connected with City Hall’s sustainability efforts.”
Mayor Madden also announced the launch of a new Facebook page for the City’s Department of Recycling and Resource Management. The page will provide updates and regular content regarding environmentally-conscious practices and community initiatives. Learn more at www.facebook.com/cleanuptroy
