1. General information
East Devon District Council, in partnership with Cloud 9 Technologies has created an Alexa skill that can be used on Amazon devices that are enabled with Alexa.
The skill is called Ask East Devon District Council and is free of charge but you do need an Alexa enabled device and an Amazon account to use it.
At the moment the skill covers the Recycling and Waste service and you can ask questions like "Alexa...Ask East Devon District Council....when is my recycling collected?" or "Alexa...Ask East Devon District Council....can I recycle (then say the item)?"
At the moment the Amazon smart speaker is the only system we are working with. The skill is currently not available under Google Home or Apple HomePod.
