Litterati App

Halifax Regional Municipality is excited to launch the Litterati App! Litterati is an interactive tool that allows residents to photograph and tag common pieces of litter that they find within their neighbourhoods and communities.

The data that is collected using the Litterati application will be used to see where litter clean ups are taking place, and track trends in the types of litter we are seeing in the community. This data will also be used to help inform and guide our waste education efforts around reducing litter.

Litterati has many unique features to make cleaning up litter in our communities both fun and impactful, including the ability to create challenges. These clean up challenges are launched and managed by the municipality. Keep an eye on both the Litterati Application and the Halifax Recycles Facebook page to find out when challenges are taking place.

The Litterati application can be downloaded via the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
