EPA App – It’s Easy to Report Environmental Pollution
The See It? Say It!’ App has been developed by the EPA to help people report any environmental pollution they see, via their phones. The EPA App now links to the FixYourStreet website, which is monitored by all local authorities.
- Using the App a member of the public can take a photograph of the pollution incident, add a quick description and their contact details and send the message with automatic GPS location coordinates for follow up by the relevant authority.
The App complements the existing 24-hour nationwide environmental complaints phone line on 1850 365 121.
People now have the option of using the App or by phoning the complaints line to report issues such as:
- Backyard burning
- Fly tipping
- Water pollution
All calls to the environmental complaints phone line are answered by dedicated staff who pass the reported information to the relevant body for follow up, be it by a local authority, An Garda SÃochÃ¡na or the EPA.
