Before the Event
Is there an area in your area where there always seems to be garbage? We want to hear from you!
The best way to let us know about some garbage that needs to be picked up is using the What3Words app. The app has a photo mode that will let you take a picture of it and overlay the What3Words address.
It helps us, because a What3Words address refers to a 3 metre square location. Being that specific with where the garbage is will really help us find it quickly!
Open the What3Words app on your mobile device
- Open the menu (3 horizontal lines in a cirlcle: ☰) and go to photo mode.
- Take the picture.
- Press the Continue button.
- The What3Words app will overlay the address on the image. Press the download button (an arrow pointing down into part of a rectangle). This will save the image to your device.
- Share the picture by sending us a message on Facebook or Twitter.

Other Ways to Let Us Know about Garbage in Your Area
You can just share the images with us on Facebook or Twitter without using What3Words. Another alternative is to contact us using our contact form and let us know where the garbage is. If you cannot use What3Words, please be as specific as possible. If the location is vague, we will not be able to direct the community clean up attendees to the site.
