Recycle your stuff with iRecycle

You never know what you’re going to find when you browse the iTunes App Store.  Since my partner is an ecoblogger, I like to keep an eye out for earth-friendly stuff for her to write about.  Well lo and behold, I found iRecycle (link to iTunes store) by a company called


This handy dandy little app lets you enter what it is you’re trying to recycle and a location.  By default it uses your GPS-determined location unless you enter something else.


It then gives you a list of the closest places that will accept your item.  Pick a place to get a phone number, link to their web site (if available), an address, what they’ll accept, and where the site is near.


The great thing about this app is that its information can be centrally updated so you don’t have to rely on the local phone books.  They also categorize each drop-off site for you, saving you the hassle of trying to get to a recycling center only to find out they won’t take what you dragged over.  Eco-friendly and convenient.  What more could you ask for?
