Curb Alert: A Crowdsourced Map App to Reclaim 'Trash'

by Gavin Cameron

July 22, 2013

If you want to get involved, you can help us out in a number of ways. We want more people to know about this project. Link to us on Facebook or Twitter and you’ll see new items that have been added to the map in your newsfeed. If you see something that you like, then let it be known. Much of the interest in Trashswag thus far has simply come from folks sharing on social media platforms. If you’d like to take the extra step and become a contributor to Trashswag, then create an account and send us a message. It’s easy enough for us to add a city subdomain, although we are primarily in Canada right now. We just need you to start adding stuff. If you’re already in Toronto you can contribute by sending in things you’ve come across via the app, email, website form or by Twitter using #trashswag in any geotagged tweet.

Become a part of the reclamation movement. Don’t let abandoned furniture and materials go to the dump. Click here to say you’ll DO it.
