Report waste to the Ordnungsamt

This is the approach of the project ” Muell-weg.de “. Wild garbage can be reported throughout Germany directly on the site or in the associated apps for Android and iOS – and directly to the local competent authority. The garbage report is created in three steps.
Where am I – and who is responsible?
Step one is almost the most important: localization. Because many willing and able garbage detectors probably failed in the past because they simply did not know in the blink of an eye who they have to report abandoned garbage to. This was and is especially true if you were a foreigner.
On the page or in the app, you just have to enter your location freely – and – if known – the address and, if necessary, specify it even more precisely on the map. Then confirm in the second step – and you already have a notification form in front of you, which is addressed to the local authority responsible for garbage notifications.
Step three is the final: fill out the form. With a subject and a short description of the garbage problem. Then confirm and whoops, the page or apps pass everything to the mail app installed on the computer or on the phone. If you like, you can still attach proof photos and check for it – so that the ugly garbage will soon be gone.
