Recycle For Ashford

screenshots Mobile Application

Recycle for Ashford is the official Recycle App for residents of Ashford Borough Council in Kent. It is a native app with advanced caching facility meaning that the app will load data even if there is no network signal present, useful if coverage is an issue. Being native it means that the app is not only featured in the stores as an actual download but it has access to all hardware features regardless of internet connection, something not true of web based apps.

It was released in 2011 and has been downloaded over 2500 times. It features an inbuilt barcode reader that is linked up to our custom database of normal household products and information on their packaging material(s).

This app is available to purchase from iTunes, Google Play and the new Amazon Kindle store for FREE.
