Need a little support in your environmental endeavours? Well, if you're an inner west local, help has arrived in the form of the council's new Waste App.

The smartphone tool has been launched to assist residents in managing their waste properly, packed with handy information, expert tips and reminders. On it, you'll find features like a bin guide, to get you up to speed on what sort of rubbish goes in each bin; an A to Z list of various items, showing how to properly dispose of them; and even bin day reminders.

Users can access their own personalised waste calendar; keeping track of things like gardening, recycling and garbage collection, and clean ups; and search for drop-off locations and recycling centres in their area.

The app also features a section filled with information about the waste hierarchy, ways to minimise personal waste, and local initiatives that are helping to foster a 'reuse and repair' culture.

The project is part of the NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More program, headed up by Inner West Council and funded by the waste levy.

The Inner West Council Waste App is available now for iOS and Android Devices.
