Is tomorrow trash day? Can you put used paper napkins and tissues in the recycling bin? (The answer is no, they go in the trash.) The handy phone app Recycle Right Newton will get you the answers and more. Created by the City of Newton, it is available for free download for Apple or Android phones.

The Recycle Right Newton app will:

  • help you find your collection day and send you a weekly reminder notification
  • send you information on delays and changes
  • let you search how to dispose an item safely and sustainably
  • distract your child with a fun waste sorting game

No smartphone? No problem. You can get the same information and sign up for a weekly reminder on the Newton Sustainable Materials Management website.
