Kansas Recycles application available for Apple smart phone, tablet

TOPEKA- In recognition of America Recycles Day (Nov. 15), the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), in cooperation with the Kansas Organization of Recyclers (KOR), has launched the Kansas Recycles application for the Apple iPhone and iPad. This app will assist Kansans in finding recycling locations in their area of the state.

The website www.kansasrecycles.org is the source for all the easy-to-use information accessed through the app. While the app is currently compatible only with the iPhone and iPad, the app will be available for download on other smart phone operating systems in early 2013.

“The Kansas Recycles app is a great tool to help Kansans identify recycling locations across the state,” said Bill Bider, KDHE Bureau of Waste Management Director. “We’re pleased to be able to recognize America Recycles Day with the launch of this app.”

Users of these Apple devices can find and download the app at www.kansasrecycles.org or www.kskor.org.

In addition to finding recycling locations across Kansas, the Kansas Recycles app also features a news section, a photo section providing images of recycling across the state and the ability to send suggestions, news items and recycling location updates directly to KOR.
