White Plains DPW Launches New Garbage & Recycling Collection App

The White Plains DPW has launched a new app to help keep White Plains residents informed about garbage and recycling collection. Called 'White Plains DPW @ Your Service,' this new app will provide residents with all of the same information they have been receiving for years in a clear, concise, easily accessible, and more personalized way.

Residents will be able to view the garbage and recycling collection schedules specific to their address. Residents will also be able to schedule pick-ups for larger, bulk items and find guidance on how to dispose of items not available for pick up. And if, like many of us, you often forget your pick up days, the app will let you set reminders.

White Plains DPW @ Your Service is available for free download on both the Apple App Store as well as the Google Play Store. Search: White Plains DPW.
