Early October 2018 

Everything is a work in progress.  Check out our progress below that we pushed live on the 5th October 2018. 

What’s New:

  • Manage Payment Cards  – When you upgrade and pay for Dsposal you now have access to your payment card details. Head to the Dashboard and there in the menu you'll see "Subscription & Payment".
  • Nice and Tidy Maps - We've changed the look of the pins on the map and added some code to cluster those pins when zooming out.
  • Search Nudge - Our waste thesaurus doesn't have all the answers but it should help you out when you out smart it.  It should therefore now it does!
  • Error Pages - Some times things get moved on websites and an error message will appear. We tidied it up so that it looks less like a dictionary vomited on the screen.
  • Showcase Affiliates - Our home page now let's everybody know who we align ourselves with.
  • Press Coverage - Being a new green tech startup gets us loads of press, so we added links to our homepage.

Bug Fixes:

  • Metadata Search - Being found on external search engines is important.  So we fixed a slight bug to make it easier for us to rank higher.
  • HWRC or Limited - A frustrating little bug meant that the map listing map and the standard listing page showed different tags for recycling centres.  They are aligned now and confusion has been beaten once again!
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.


Early September 2018 

Here we go again with the improvements. Here are the items we released on the 6th September 2018. 

What’s New:

  • Enhanced Notifications  – Get Trash Talk Notifications straight to your inbox.
  • Buttons look like buttons – We ran an experiment to see what our buttons should look like. Can you spot the difference?
  • Loading Icons  – So, here's the thing, when a button is pressed and nothing happens then questions start racing through your head. Is it broken? Is it loading? Should I press it again? Did I not press it properly? Our new buttons now let you know when they have been pressed. Thank you for pointing this one out to us.
  • Dashboard Sites - The Sites section got a lick of paint this time round. It's easier to tell which sites are pending verification, which sites are licensed waste sites and which are unlicensed non-waste sites.
  • Map and Tiles - Search for waste company, click a tile, see where it is on the map. Neat! (Doesn't work for unclaimed sites).
  • Phone Number - Phone number is now a link so you can phone the site you are viewing.
  • Logos - You can have a moving logo - just upload a gif file and away you go. This is ours on a test profile.

Bug Fixes:

  • Home Page Search - Searching for waste companies is pretty much our core function. Some of you couldn't do this. That was an issue. It is no longer an issue.
  • Claiming a Site - We had an issue with claiming a site. You probably didn't notice it but it drove us up the wall. We are now driving up a different wall.
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.


Mid July 2018 

Another sprint, another list of new features. Here are the items we released on the 23rd July 2018. 

What’s New:

  • Waste Profiles Visible Everywhere – You asked, so we delivered.  Site profiles are now viewable on the national stage.
  • Documents – If you are responsible for managing a waste profile you can now add your licences, insurances and certificates to your profiles.
  • Upload Logos – As a waste company you can now add your own branding with your logo!!!
  • Updated Registration Page - Confirm your email, then your password.  Plus there's now a handy tool for letting you know how strong your password is.

Bug Fixes:

  • Sites Tab - Some of our users couldn't see the sites tab; that has been fixed.  Bug be gone!
  • Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.


Early July 2018 

This awesome release was pushed on 2nd July 2018.

What’s New:

  • Services – You have been asking for a while and now we are able to deliver the new Services feature for site profiles.
  • Articles – Call it a blog or news but we have one. We will write content to keep you updated about all things Dsposal. There are a handful there now but over the coming weeks and months we are going to keep adding to it so keep coming back. Head over to the Dsposal articles section here.
  • Updated Help Section – A fresh lick of paint on the help section makes it easier to find the answer to that burning question. What do you think of this new help section?
  • EWC Code Navigation Improvement – EWC Codes are hard enough without the added issue of being hard to navigate. Thankfully you let us know that a breadcrumb would help you find the right code for that rubbish you want to get rid of.
  • Claim a Site – Users can now claim their waste licence and create a site profile.
  • Updated Pricing Page – Quick paint job to help you understand the different pricing levels that Dsposal offers. You really should take a quick look at this page.

Bug Fixes:

  • Smaller Screen Size Tweak – On 4” smartphones we were struggling with the Register and Login menu. No more.
  • Names are now links – At long last we fixed the bug that stopped the site profile names being a link to that site. Wonder at the easy to check out waste sites. Various under the hood tweaks and improvements.


A huge thank you to all those users that let us know. These updates and improvements wouldn’t be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues or have any suggestions, please let us know
