1. Latvia – people responsible for their spots

People were able to do mapping almost a month before the cleanup day. The mapping was closed 2 days before the cleanup. Mappers became responsible for the spot they had marked on the map and they had to collect the waste on the cleanup day. They also gave information specific addresses of waste locations, their phone number, e-mail addresses and also information if gloves were available, tools, water, food etc. for other participants. When the team accepted the request, all this information was shown on the map so everyone could get the information they needed. If you did not want to become responsible for a cleaning spot, then you could be a participant by contacting the responsible person for that specific place (what many people prefered to do). The specific address is necessary because afterwords corrdinators and waste managment companies will know where to pick up the waste.

2. Lithuania – first municipalities then participants

There was a two-step mapping for this area. Firstly cleanup points were suggested by local municipalities. They had the best information about their polluted places. Afterwards participants were able to suggest cleanup points too. The polluted places were identified and marked by smartphones. Finally the list of cleanup places was shown on our website

4. Nepal – no digital mapping

No digital mapping system was used. Although in some of the places people took photos of the waste and uploaded it. Eventually the main organizer and some of his friends marked places on the map. One week before the cleanup day the team annouced the waste location area. During the cleanup day the volunteers focused on that area.

5. Kosovo – one day for taking photos

From April until May 15th, registration and photos of 1623 garbage sites (illegal sites) took place in all Kosovo municipalities. Mapping was done by groups which were organized in each municipality. In cooperation with the municipal officials of environment as well as waste management companies the groups photographed the illegal garbage sites. Shooting was done with the photo cameras and waste mapping program which is meant for Android phones or iPhone.
