Add Custom Message and GarbageType Options to Proactive Event AMAZON.TrashCollectionAlert.Activated Schema
Ideally, we could add our own custom message instead of being limited to the phrasing currently provided.
Our main focus, currently, is to push a notification to citizens when their trash pickup is delayed due to a holiday.
Desired user experience: "Due to the <holiday name> holiday, your trash pickup date has changed to <date>."
Additionally, for most citizens, there are only 3 types: non-recyclable, recyclable, and heavy trash. These are all picked up on the same day of the week, so even if we wanted to enumerate the different types, a limit of 5 would not be enough and 5 or less might confuse citizens as to what they are allowed to put out.
In the future, it would be helpful to be able to just tell user's their trash day, without enumerating the types of trash.
Desired user experience: "Your trash day pickup day is tomorrow, <day of week>, <date>"
Heavy trash items are a special case that is picked up with regular trash once a month. It would be nice to be able to communicate this as well.
Desired user experience: "Your <normal and heavy> trash pickup day is tomorrow, <day of week>, <date>, <and can include [x] heavy items>"

I need this too!
The AMAZON.TrashCollectionAlert.Activated Schema is useless with these predefined garbage types. I need additional garbage types.
It would be very nice if we could define our own garbage types and/or translate these predefined garbage types better.

What i would need first is a Garbage Type "non-recyclable" as in Austria and Germany we have this non-recyclable waste called "Restabfall".
