But now residents don’t have to go hunting for the printed schedule or be sitting in front of their computers. Instead, by downloading Recycle Coach™, Berks County residents can check details for regular and special collections and events for household hazardous waste or e-waste days, and more.
 
Special features of Berks County Recycle Coach™ app & website plug-in include a search function that lets residents quickly find information about what to do with a regular or out-of-the-ordinary item, plus there are tips for reducing and recycling waste in apartment and condo buildings.
