iPhone App to Find Recycling

iPhone Green Apps

"Residents can now find out where to recycle or properly dispose of materials using our convenient, location-based mobile application. Instead of dumping old electronics or furniture on the sidewalk, the EcoFinder iPhone app tells you where these materials should go, based on your location."

This is part of San Francisco's wider effort to clean up the city and divert waste from landfill.  Currently, San Francisco has a landfill diversion rate of 72% and is seeking to get up 75% by the year 2012.

This new effort by San Francisco is not the first of its kind.  Last week, the city opened up it's own twitter page to allow residents to report potholes, trash and keep updated about city events, services.
