The Surf Coast Rubbish and Recycling App

This app makes it possible for you to:
  • get reminders about bin night
  • view and download your collection calendar
  • check what goes in each bin
  • receive notifications when there is a change to the service, like a broken truck, catastrophic fire rating days, or an extra collection.

Some notes about SCRRApp

Downloading the app

Download it now from the iTunes and Google Play app stores.

If you are searching for it, don't forget the second R in SCRRApp

It is listed as a mobile app, but you can download it on a tablet. Just make sure your search is set to find mobile apps as well.

Here's what it looks like in the iTunes App store.


Allow notifications (iPhone)

When you open the app for the first time you will be asked if you want to allow notifications.

Allowing notifications means you will get messages from the app. This could include things like your weekly bin reminder, a change to your collection (maybe a truck is broken or it is a code red fire day), or a reminder about extra collections, like around the holidays.

This is what it looks like on an iPhone.


Adding addresses

When you first download the app you'll click ADD LOCATION to add your first property (you can add more later if you want)


As you type your address, a list of addresses will come up.

The app works for addresses in Surf Cost Shire only.

On the next screen you can fine tune the address and give it a name, like "Home."

Can't find your address?

The search function of the app uses Google Maps to find your address. Some addresses won't show up, for example new builds or remote properties.

If this happens for you, try searching just your street name, then adding the street number in manually on the next page.

If it still doesn't work, let us know.

Add another address

Click your property name at the top and select Add Location.

Or click the three horizontal lines at the top left to open a menu where you'll see another place you can Add Location.


Download a 12 month calendar

You are able to download a rolling 12 month calendar from the Services section of the app. The calendar in SCRRApp also shows your extra bin collections for the Christmas period.


Searchable materials

We will be adding more and more materials to the searchable list on the app.

If there is something you are looking for that isn't on there it might already be on our list to add, but let us know anyway in case it isn't.

How to search

Use the search bar to type in "fruit" (for example), and you'll see it goes in the green lidded FOGO bin.

You can also click on the item to see more information.

Or, you can click one of the bin colours at the top to see what goes in that bin.

It acts like a filter, so if you select the recycling bin, then type "lid" it will show you what lids can go in the recycling bin.
