Alexa Skill: Barnsley Bins

The Barnsley Bin Day Alexa Skill is designed to give you your next bin collection day, and tell you which colour bin will be collected next.

  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Device Settings
  4. Select the device you want to run the skill on (repeat this for each device)
  5. Select Location
  6. Fill in your address and save

The skill also needs permission to read your device's address:

  1. In the Alexa app on your phone, select Skills and Games
  2. Locate the Barnsley Bins skill
  3. Select "Settings" (big blue button near the top)
  4. Select "Manage Settings"
  5. Enable "Device Address" and save.
