New app launches on-demand green waste service
Seventeen thousand Auckland households have been invited to try our new on-demand green waste collection service that makes disposing of garden waste as easy as ordering a ride on Uber.
EnviroWaste’s smartphone app, called EnviroEarth, enables householders to order a 240 or 360 litre wheelie bin for their garden waste, and book and pay for its collection when they want it emptied. The green waste is later transported to our facility in Hampton Downs, where it is 100% composted.
Free to download through the Google Play Store or the App Store, EnviroEarth is designed to give users more control over how they manage their green waste. Householders already use smart phones to order services and buy things when it suits – so why not garden waste removal? The EnviroEarth app also removes many of the bugbears of a household green waste collection, including fixed-term contracts, upfront costs and inflexible options for bin collection. Instead, the app allows customers to pay a one-off fee each time they book a green waste collection.
Initially available to residents in Auckland’s Remuera and Eastern Bays, we are gearing up to extend the service to other Auckland suburbs later this year and, in the longer term, to regions around the country.
The launch of the new app comes after Auckland Council unveiled its Auckland Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018 for managing waste to achieve zero-waste by 2040. The EnviroEarth service fits nicely with this objective.
