TrashOut: This App Lets You Report Illegal Dumps To Clean Up Your Neighbourhood

TrashOut: This App Lets You Report Illegal Dumps To Clean Up Your Neighbourhood

Meet TrashOut, an environmental project that aims to get rid of illegal dumps around the world and help citizens recycle more. The TrashOut app lets you report illegal dumps around you to local authorities, environmental organisations or active volunteers, who will help to clean up the illegal dump.



The app also lets you dispose of your waste the right way. It helps you find the right bin or collection centre according to what you want to dispose of with filters that include the size and type of waste they accept and proximity to you. TrashOut even includes directions and their opening hours.

If that’s not enough, you can earn green points for your activities with a history of the reports, updates and current status of the dumps you follow. The dumps are presented on a world map along with statistics for your country.

You can download the free app for your smartphone here.

You can also support the project with your time or donations here.
