CleanApp’s approach to mapping waste goes beyond just mapping trash.


One of the key innovations of CleanAppMap (under construction) is that it serves as a dynamic jurisdiction mapping engine. Jurisdiction doesn’t just mean city, state, or neighborhood boundaries. Jurisdiction means (1) who can do (2) what (3) where.

Unlike every other CleanApp-type service currently on the market, CleanApp goes beyond incident mapping in public places. We believe that users want the freedom to do CleanApp reporting wherever they may be–indoors, or outdoors, in City A or Airport Terminal B, in university X, or supermarket Y.

Mapping Made Easy

Our approach to process design places great weight on the user experience.

We know that the easier it is to do CleanApp Reporting, the more people will do so. The more people that do CleanApp Reporting, the higher the likelihood of an effective response.

This same approach applies to mapping. The easier we make it for people to do CleanAppMapping, the more people will do so. The more people who do CleanAppMapping, the better the resulting maps.

CleanApp’s Competition

CleanApp is not trying to compete with any of the excellent waste mapping platforms already out there. We believe our approach to resource mapping charts a radically different path forward. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing some of these novel approaches to jurisdiction mapping. Please stay tuned.
