Goal achieved! Trashcan policy will be changed accordingly to data from my Litterati pickups!

Today a government official called me; he saw my email with screenshots from my Litterati- Impact statistics. Next week he will finalize the map of trashcans for 2020. He invited me to his office to give advice, based my data in Litterati. He told me that he has never seen a map with such details on where the litter hotspots are. Most satisfactory conversation in 2020 up until now. Feels good to live in an area where civilians can directly influence local policy.

  1. Nice work but who is allowed to access the data? Restricting who is allowed to access data, and what can be done with the data, protects polluting industries, maintains the status quo, and restricts legal and scientific progress. When doing citizen science, please consider creating open data that anyone can access

    1. Hi OpenLitterMap. Yes, we successfully declined litter because the industry signed convenants to not sell plastic fireworks. All based on a closed database, Litterati. So it is possible. How do you think the anti litter industry gets funded?
