In its ongoing effort to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the services it delivers, the City is offering residents a new tool for accessing information about and scheduling sanitation services. The interactive website allows City sanitation customers to submit information to receive automatic responses about collection schedules and acceptable items, and to schedule special pickups of large or bulky items. The tool was developed to simplify household trash and recycling disposal for customers, encourage compliance with recycling guidelines, and reduce unsafe or illegal disposal of large or hazardous items.
Sanitation customers may visit https://api.recollect.net/r/area/bloomingtonin (also accessible via the QR code below) at any time for the following information and services:
