Do you maintain data for recycle schedule?
Let me apologize in advance if I am asking a question in this forum which I should not. I like to know if you maintain any data for local recycle schedule ( for the town or municipality). I am thinking about creating an app which will help people to check their town's schedule based on location.
Hi, this is a great idea and a challenging one. We don't track the schedules of pickup services, but we do have information about what goes in the curbside bin by location. The challenge you face is mapping the hauler's schedule to the user's address. Haulers have fixed routes they have to file with the municipality (in many, but not all cases), but that level of detail is subject to frequent changes.
Thanks Mitch ! I thought further on this and as you indicated, it will be indeed very complicated data structure to capture details on individual town and curbside details. But I am not giving up yet. Thinking about to start with something and evolve it in time. If you don't mind I will come back here if I need some guidance or assistance.
