App to combat £2m issue of fly-tipping in Wales
An app has been developed to combat the problem of fly-tipping which costs the Welsh taxpayer £2m a year.
Council waste officers will use a smart phone to log, photograph and plot fly-tipping incidents onto a GPS mapping system in real time.
It will pinpoint fly-tipping hotspots in Carmarthenshire, Gwynedd, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Newport, Denbighshire and Cardiff.
The current system just logs data on to a spreadsheet.
The Flymapper was developed by Fly-tipping Action Wales and the organisation's programme manager Gary Evans spoke to Oliver Hides.
