About this app

This is the official mobile app for the Arkansas Department of Energy and Environment's Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ). DEQ’s mission is to protect, enhance, and restore the natural environment for the well-being of all Arkansans.

Reports from citizens are vital for the effective enforcement of Arkansas's environmental laws. You can report anything you think is polluting air, land, or water. When in doubt, contact us. The Pollution Complaint feature on DEQ's mobile app allows users anywhere in the state to report environmental hazards directly from some smartphones.

DEQ oversees efforts to properly handle and dispose of waste tires, preferably through recycling. Our Tire Disposal feature promotes proper disposal by locating authorized facilities and providing contact information for them.

ADEQ wants to hear from you. Not only do we want to know about pollution complaints, but we would welcome your general feedback. The Contact Information section allows Arkansans to contact us for information about our agency’s programs and send general feedback.

Check out these features:

Pollution Complaints

The Pollution Complaints feature allows Arkansans to report environmental hazards in real-time. To file a complaint, provide the following:

- Complaint type (air, hazardous waste, water, etc.).
- Description of the potential violation.
- County of the potential violation.
- Location or driving directions to the potential violation.
- Photos. Photos you take within the ADEQ mobile app will be geotagged with - GPS coordinates if GPS location services are enabled on your mobile device.
- Contact information, optional. Complaints can be made anonymously; HOWEVER, if you would like an email confirmation, you must provide a valid email address in the Contact Information screen.

NOTE: You do not need to identify yourself in any way, nor do we make any effort to capture identifying information about you. If you wish to remain anonymous, please do not provide your name, address, phone number, or email address when you send us your comments or complaints. We will investigate anonymous complaints as thoroughly as possible. If you do provide contact information, please note that it, along with your complaints, questions, and comments, becomes a public record subject to public disclosure under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. (Please refer to our Privacy Policy: https://www.adeq.state.ar.us/privacy/mobile/)

You will be able to review all of your complaint information prior to submission.

- Provides contact information for all authorized facilities so that Arkansans can ask questions.
- Reduces travel distances and costs by finding the closest collection centers and disposal sites.

The app will not load even a single photo; if I attach any photos at all I just get error messages when I try to submit the report. In addition the list of tire collection centers is completely out of date, the State made significant changes to this list about 2 years ago and the list has apparently not been updated. Two of the three centers near me no longer accept waste tires.

Tried several times over and over to Lodge a complaint and none of them seem to go through I don't know if it's a problem with the app because I have no problem otherwise sending data but I had to call and logic complaint and no photos got sent because there's no way to send photos over the phone as far as I know.

App consistently returned an error when submitting a complaint with photos attached. I suspect newer phones generate images that are exceeding some size limit. Still a very useful app - it really cuts through a lot of the red tape that used to be required to submit pollution complaints! Kudos to the ADEQ for having this app!
