Torfaen council’s smartphone app is now available to download.
Using the app, residents can report a missed bin or a pothole, order a new recycling box, and stay up-to-date with community news, events and information from their smartphones and tablets.
The app puts a wide range of services at your fingertips, meaning you can contact your council anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
Get instant notifications about local issues, updates on events and activities, report fly-tipping, litter and dog fouling while you’re out and about, all with just a few simple pushes and swipes on the council’s easy-to-use forms.
You can send videos or photos of an issue recorded directly from your phone or tablet, use online maps to pinpoint the location and once you’ve submitted your report, you’ll receive updates on the progress of your request through your app. You can search for your nearest services and facilities, find your local councillor, give feedback on council services or submit a freedom of information request.
There is also a host of useful information from recycling and waste services to library searches, while you can even check the latest food hygiene ratings if you’re going out for a meal.
The app is available from iTunes , Android with a Windows version being developed and going live later in the year.
This is the latest development in Torfaen council’s ongoing commitment to making it as easy as possible to access council services.
