This App Encourages People To Take Pictures Of Their Trash To Make Recycling Easier

By Brian Spaen

Litterati, a mobile app that’s geared toward making trash pickup a community event, has recently updated their program with new features. It’s now easier for people to collaborate their efforts to pick up trash, upload their pictures to the collection, and categorizing litter with more tags. Further updates to increase engagement are also planned for the app.

There’s plenty of times where we’ve walked past cans, bottles, and bags that are scattered all over roads and sidewalks. Litterati provides a way for anybody to take a picture of it, tag it, and throw it away. The idea is to create a global database of what’s not being disposed of properly to gain a better understanding and to make these products more sustainable.
