Download the Derry Strabane Recycling App & win a tablet!

Council have launched a new, free Recycling App. It includes handy features like reminders to leave out your bin & everyone who downloads will be entered into a competition to win a tablet. The app is now available to download for free on Apple & Android. 


We are asking residents to ‘Step It Up’ in the fight against climate change and take action to protect our environment through even better recycling habits. Simple steps like recycling bathroom plastics can make a huge difference to our carbon footprint and environment.
