Following a successful tender process Origin Digital were commissioned by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council (LCCC) to produce an app to help people manage their bin collections, sort their household waste more effectively and find their nearest recycling facilities.

LCCC’s Primary Objectives were to:

  • Promote the range of waste management services available within the LCCC area
  • Inform residents of what bin to put their waste in
  • Remind households of collection dates
  • Notify residents of improvements or changes to services
  • Advise on what happens to residents’ waste

What we did

We worked with the LCCC team to come up with an identity (‘Binformation’) and style which would engage people and present the information in an accessible and easy to follow way.

The App using colour and icons to provide a friendly experience and gives the user an excellent quick reference guide to the age old question ‘which bin does this go in?’

Binformation also provides users with full bin collection schedules based on their post code and a really handy bin reminder service which sends the user a reminder the night before their bin is due for collection (“Remember, put the Blue bin out tomorrow!”)

Produced for iOS and Android, Binformation is a simple but really effective way of solving some frustrating daily problems, protecting the environment and helping people get on with with their lives.
