It all started with a competition: The Startup in Residence Program The Hague 2016.
The Municipality of The Hague has made it possible for their residents to take part in trying to solve major issues which the city faces. One of these was the issue of ORAC bijplaatsingen (also known as waste placed besides underground waste disposal containers). We have seen and smelled this problem ourselves in the city of The Hague. This issue has a negative impact on the atmosphere in the neighbourhood, but it also attracts vermin (seagulls, cats & rats). That is why we set out to develop a mobile solution, together with the help of the Municipality the residents we created the My Clean City app!
With My Clean City App on your phone you could easily report the issue to those who would deal with it. Not just that, you would get credit points which you could later spend for voucher, certificates or for adopting a tree of your choice.
My Clean City App allows you as its user chance to report things like cracked pavement, graffiti, dog poop and way more. This way not only would you solve the problems with waste or others in your neighbourhood, but you would get benefits for doing so.
What else? With My Clean City App there is no need to give out your phone number or FaceBook details to your neighbours just so you could get in touch with them. Now you can simply use the app and you will have a forum connecting all of your neighbourhood. You can post messages, advertisements and more.
