Bexley council launches resident waste app
The local authority for the London Borough of Bexley has created a new mobile application for local residents who want to keep up-to-date with the council’s waste and recycling news and services.
The @home app is available for free download from the Apple app store or from the Android app store. Only Bexley residents are allowed to download the new waste app and to create an account.
Those who download @home will benefit from immediate waste and recycling information, including service disruptions and updates, recycling and waste events, and recycling centre information, including opening times and which materials can be taken to which sites.
Residents must first register with their email address and home postcode before they can access the app.
Bexley Council suffered an embarrassing backlash from residents last year following the introduction of a garden waste service, for which residents could opt in at a cost of £33 per year. Those who had paid the £33 annual fee were left waiting for months for their garden waste to be collected from the council.
The council is therefore hoping for a more successful experience with the new @home app, two major benefits of which are the ability to order new waste caddies from the council and to contact the council waste team directly to request details or to raise any issues.
Bexley Councillor Peter Craske commented: “We are constantly looking at new, value for money, ways of providing services to our residents. This app, which is free, gives residents the opportunity to obtain key recycling information and the ability to report any waste collection issues to us while they are on the move.”

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
