TrashOut, the free mobile app, not only gives consumers a way to report illegal dumps, but it also rewards them with badges for the steps they take toward getting those dumps cleaned up.
Once users download it, they can use the TrashOut app to report any illegal dump they find, including a photo and any comments. That report will then appear on TrashOut’s online TrashMap. If the dump hadn’t yet been reported, users are rewarded with a reporting badge; if it had, they get a different badge for confirming it. Either way, users can then contact local authorities to get the dump cleaned up, or they can organize a clean-up themselves, earning the app’s most prestigious badge of all.
