Recycle Coach App -
Recycling Simplified!

The Recycle Coach app (formerly known as My Waste) is a helpful resource to track and manage your trash and recycling services within the City of Rockwall.

The app can provide personalized collection schedules for web and mobile. Another feature is an interactive tool to communicate trash issues with city staff. For instance, if you experience service problems, you can snap a picture and send it straight to the Utility Billing Department. In addition, the app enables the City to push out schedule changes and updates as they are needed.

You can download the app on the recycle coach website here.
