Garbage app called My Waste reminds Medicine Hatters to take out trash

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Need a reminder in the morning to take out the trash?

There's an app for that, at least if you live in Medicine Hat, Alta.

The city has unveiled a free mobile phone and tablet application about recycling and garbage called My Waste.

Spokeswoman Sharon Schentag says the app is available for Apple and Android devices, while the Blackberry edition will be released next year.

Once residents set their collection zone, they can add a reminder or alert to put out their garbage for pickup.

There is also information about where to drop-off certain items such as electronics and tires.

The city is also discussing whether to create an app to allow residents to see which streets are under construction.
