ReCollect Waste


The recollect_waste integration allows you to track the next scheduled waste pickup and what type of waste from ReCollect.

To use this integration, you must know both your ReCollect Place and Service IDs. In general, cities/municipalities that utilize ReCollect will give you a way to subscribe to a calendar with pickup dates. If you examine the iCal URL for this calendar, the Place and Service IDs are embedded in it:

webcal://recollect.a.ssl.fastly.net/api/places/PLACE_ID/services/SERVICE_ID/events.en-US.ics

The default frequency for pulling data from ReCollect Waste is once a day (86400 seconds).

The ReCollect Waste sensor uses the ReCollect API URL to obtain data and not an official API from ReCollect. Use at your own risk.
