With the announcement of the My Recycle List iPad giveaway, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users have been downloading the app and finding nearby locations for their recycling projects with record ease. The incentive to win a free iPad may drive users to download the app, but they are also finding practicality in keeping the app on their device for simple recycling solutions at the tap of the screen. The sweepstakes, which runs until September 1, is easy to enter: Simply download, rate and review the app, providing any necessary feedback, then fill out a short contest form to be eligible.

“This app is incredibly easy to use,” says Christina Bobonski, who recently downloaded and tried My Recycle List. “I searched for recycling centers in San Francisco that accept large appliances, and in seconds had a list of places within a 5-mile radius. The list included contact information, maps and directions available right on my phone.” Bobonski, like others, is floored that 1-800-RECYCLING is offering My Recycle List users such a sought-after prize. “I appreciate this company so much for giving away such a cool device to support the green effort,” she says. “I couldn’t ask for a better prize or a better cause.” My Recycle List, 1-800-RECYCLING.com’s new iPhone app, is the easiest way to quickly find nearby recycling locations for nearly any recyclable material. Using the device’s built-in GPS, My Recycle List finds the closest locations within your ZIP code. Covering all of the United States and parts of Canada, the app is the premier place to find drop-off and pick-up recycling services. Users can search for as many materials at once as needed, and they can create grocery-like lists of upcoming recycling projects. My Recycle List also lets the user view the locations on a map and call them or visit their website directly. (Editor’s note: My Recycle List has been rebranded as the 1800Recycling.com mobile app following the publishing date.)
