This App makes it really easy to report environmental pollution (Republic of Ireland only) with the GPS location and a photo submitted at the touch of a button. We hope that you will use the App’s simple reporting methods to protect the environment in your local area.
If you spot environmental pollution or dumping, open the App, take a photograph, add a few simple details including your contact details, and submit the complaint. The app will send the GPS coordinates and will make it easy for those investigating to locate the problem. This will allow your local County or City Council to follow up on the complaint.
You can also use the App to make a phone call to the National Environmental Complaints Line 1850 365 121. The phone line is open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week and all calls will be answered by dedicated staff. The details of the complaint, such as location, nature of the complaint, will be recorded and passed to the relevant local authority, and followed up by them, the Gardaí or the EPA as appropriate.
Ratings and Reviews
Works well - great collaboration
I’ve used it a few times now and found that the council (Fingal) responds in good time to fix reported issues. Great way to collaborate between public and council services.
Great App but Bad Follow-Up
I reported serious concrete effluent pollution of SAC land on the 8th of December 2013. My local council were only told about it on the 27th, at which point it was further delayed by people being on holidays.
Finally, today the 10th of January, 2014, an officer from the council was sent out to investigate but it was too late as the effluent had been spread by the heavy rains, all over the SAC and was no longer visible.
This delay of a month is inexcusable and makes a mockery of this, otherwise fantastic app.
Simple and quick to use
Let's hope they take action on the reports they get. App is fast and easy to use.
