How this site is built
This site is built using Next.js and Tailwind CSS.
Originally Harry built the site with Bootstrap and some gnarly jQuery soup, which made it slow and expensive. Thankfully, Tommy got involved and changed all that.
Open government data
Each bin image is labelled with open government APIs about local councils in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
The current map is a SVG exported from a government vector map, with colours we tweaked a bit.
Hosting and privacy
The homepage has lazy loading to decrease its latency. Also to improve performance images are pasted through ImageOptim and synced them to Amazon S3, when deployed via GitHub.
