    “What this application does is present you with an amazingly simple-to-use interface that shows categories of recycling, first of all. This app is so easy to use and so helpful when we want to recycle our wares that it’s almost amazing that it’s free. Thanks to Earth911 though, it certainly is free, and it’s certainly worth a download – grab it!”

    I know we have recycling bins in town, I just don't know where they are... I don't have a vehicle to drive around looking for them...

    It used to work but now it won't find any recycling places near my location for ANY categories. :( I hope it gets fixed.

    Every place I called that this app suggested DID NOT accept e-waste. Complete waste of time.
