The City of Delta was recently notified that there was a data breach concerning users of the My Waste app, a mobile app used by some of city's residents for garbage reminders and recycling information.

Technology   The breach does not include all users
The breach does not include all users, only those that opted in to receive marketing emails and updates from Recycle Coach and My Waste.

Recycle Coach, the company who develops My Waste, has notified all users about the breach and are taking steps to ensure tighter security of user information.

While the app includes the City's logo for the Delta users, the city does not collect or manage data stored by the app.

Delta only promotes the app from its website and supplies information on garbage and recycling schedules.
