“I was always surprised by how many people had their yard waste at the curb out on the wrong days,” Wes Worsfold
Inspired by Google’s 20% policy, BitBakery Labs is where we solve our own problems and experiment with new technologies.
We built the Waterloo Garbage & Yard Waste app because too much yard waste was out on the wrong days. We wanted to help Waterloo Region – and ourselves – build a cleaner community with better yard waste (and now garbage) management. The app uses four principles: specificity, simplicity, reliability, and anonymity.
Here’s how it works:
1. Download and install the app. Launch it
2. Select your city/township and the pickup date
3. Get notified the weekend and the night before pickup
The Garbage & Yard Waste App is reliable, specific to our community and doesn’t need any account. 1500 Waterloo Region households use the app making local living easier.
