1800*Recycling Mobile App now available

Recycling App

Just in time for Spring cleaning, 1*800*Recycling has debuted their newest app. We've written about their first version, here. Instead of throwing things out in our attempts to clear away clutter, there is an app available to tell you exactly who can reuse or recycle your cast-offs. The zip code search engine tells folks where to recycle electronics, plastic, metal, paper, glass, household, hazardous, automobile and yard waste. From their email blast:

The all-new 1800Recycling.com mobile app - formerly known as "My Recycle List" - helps you quickly find recycling locations nearest you.
The app combines the best of My Recycle List's features with a brand new user interface. 
New and intuitive features to make the most complete recycling app available. 
This free app is still the easiest way to find convenient drop-off locations and organize your recyclables quickly and effectively. You can even share and rate your recycling experiences to help others recycle better!
