Google Maps continues to receive functionalities. The browser owned by the American technology company has expanded the options available to the user to offer additional information on recycling. The objective is to help people not only know where they can dispose of certain products or materials, but also also locate establishments with sustainable models and practices.
The new information on recycling can be found both on Maps and in Google Search, in the business profile. If their accounts are verified, merchants can provide information on the materials or items they accept for recycling.
This novelty is already available, as reported by Google in its
official blog. And together with it, the company points out that members of the Local Guides program can create their lists of establishments that have sustainable business models or practices.
These users can create lists of places like nearby charging stations for electric cars, recycling centers or second-hand stores, for example. These lists can be configured for other users to view or even contribute.
