Dump.Waste provides a crowdsourced data map of identified trash hotspots within a city to help in creating data-driven decisions against illegal dumping. It also enables people to organize clean-ups.
Our mobile app, Dump.waste, is a trash mapping solution to help Environmentalists, Environmental Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), Local Government Units (LGUs), and the average citizen create data-driven decisions as well as organize clean-ups with the help of empowering community science through a mobile app with user-friendly processes.
We give the citizens a chance to post about the trash they see in a familiar Instagram my-story-like fashion, provide the government with a data map of identified trash hotspots in the city to help them create data-driven decisions against illegal dumping, and help organize clean-ups with the community and nurture a culture of frequent community clean-ups for a greener future.
This can be easily achieved in three steps:
EU GNSS technologies (Galileo)
The use of EU GNSS is paramount to Dump.Waste. First, it can serve as a private satellite containing all the trashspots in every city. This project can then be replicated faster around the world. Second, once EU GNSS establishes all the trashpots, it can easily notify the government and citizens nearby about trash information and prompt them to take action. Climate change can finally be acted upon!
