Ottumwa recycling launches new website, alert system

Ottumwa/Wapello County Recycling Center

Ottumwa’s recycling center is becoming user friendly.

The facility recently launched a new website with more mapping functions and a Waste Wizard. Recycling Coordinator Janice Bain told KTVO a Waste Wizard will tell customers which materials are recyclable and which ones aren’t.

The new site also includes a text messaging alert system, that tells customers when their trash collection day is.

“Which I think will come in real handy when there’s a holiday and their collection day is moved,” Bain said. “They’ll get a text message, reminding them, remember, Monday is a holiday, so trash won’t be collected until Tuesday.”

Bain added that customers may also email her when they're logged on.

The new website is listed under the same address as the facility's old site. CLICK HERE to access the new site.
