Open Data Case Study: ReportIt! SMC - Crowdsourcing Illegal Dumping
Illegal dumping disrupts the cleanliness and quality of living in San Mateo County, not to mention the toll improper disposal takes on our environment. In addition, illegal dumping creates extra work for many County departments whose duties necessitate finding, cleaning up, or working around dumping sites.
Check out the case study below and learn how the ReportIt! SMC application allows anyone with online access to report information about an illegal dumping incident. This data is uploaded to the County’s Open Data Portal, which will both accelerate the cleaning and inform future decisions on deciding on where to place recycling stations or imposing a new fine zone.
