Creative technology company rehab have launched a new Google Home voice skill ‘Recycle That!’ to help consumers take the confusion out of recycling.

The new addition will allow users to ask which items can be recycled, overcoming one of the main challenges of recycling in the UK.

Google Home is a smart speaker which allows users to speak voice commands to interact with services.

Sam Steele, Head of UX at rehab, said: “By giving people the hands-free and in the moment option of asking their Google Home first, we hope to get people recycling items that would otherwise go to landfill.

“The Government’s aim to recycle at least 50% of household waste by 2020 is a tough target, and everyone must work together to make this as easy as possible.”

Fantastic idea. How would the advice ensure it's in line with local recycling facilities for different types of properties, given the huge variability in the recycling services across the UK?
