Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) has partnered with the Snap Send Solve reporting application to develop an easy way for members of the public to report local stockpiles or dumping hotspots.
TSA Adopts Waste App
“If you see some dumped waste tyres or what you suspect is a stockpile, simply snap a photo and send a report using the app. The appropriate authority can then be alerted, and the problem can be solved,” said CEO of TSA, Lina Goodman.
“Understanding how we can work together to ‘stop the stockpile’ that is generated by illegal operators is the first step in finding sustainable end outcomes for a greater number of used tyres in Australia,” Ms Goodman said.
Snap Send Solve is a platform that enables authorities and their customers to identify and solve local issues for the benefit of communities across Australia and New Zealand.
“Users capture and send photos of issues that need attention – from cracked pavements and dumped rubbish to water faults and sick and injured animals – and ensure that the correct authorities are provided with the necessary information to respond,” said the CEO and Founder of Snap Send Solve, Danny Gorog.
“Now users can easily report not just rubbish, but more specifically dumped or stockpiled waste tyres. The reports will be provided to the relevant Council for resolution, as well as Tyre Stewardship Australia who will monitor hotspots and communicate directly with tyre retailers, state and local authorities to stamp out poor behaviour.”
“While TSA is not responsible for regulating or cleaning up stockpiles, we are part of the solution. We want to work with the community and Councils to avoid the situation in the first place and ensure that more tyres find a sustainable end outcome,” Ms Goodman said.
The app is free to download from the App Store or Google Play.
