    UI is okay but the information shown from 2nd November onwards is incomplete; not all the bins due for collection are shown and there is no info at all for 9th of November.

    Clunky and doesn't work properly. It's a shame the idea behind it is good, execution is pretty dismal.

    Would be great if for example it could tell you the nearest place to recycle light bulbs. All it tells you is the info sent out by the council. It is just as easy to check that list.

    It's pretty low in content. Can't believe you have to put in your district and it doesn't just work off the postcode. Its slow. No alerts? Easier just to look outside
