Waste monitoring project

From EPSA - European Public Sector Award

[edit]

The project is being developed by the Vilnius City Administration, providing a waste monitoring system for public use. The main objectives of the project are to:

  • Collect and save data about Vilnius city regions and waste transporters;
  • Register citizens’ complaints concerning the city’s waste management;
  • Monitor activities of all institutions concerning waste recycling and cleaning and entering the data into an external database;
  • Draft reports concerning waste cleaning and recycling.

All issues with regard to ‘waste’ in the Vilnius region are presented on the city’s website, which will provide a virtual map for public use. Users of the virtual map comprise: Vilnius citizens, registered users, Vilnius municipality environment protection division, Vilnius region environment protection engineers, waste transporters, dump waste workers, waste recyclers, household administration companies and community chairpersons.

The virtual map has been built on ArcGis Server version 9.3. Citizens who have waste problems will be able to register them on the system and it will be possible to observe the problem solution process. Furthermore, citizens will be able to use the new system to inform the environment protection division of the city administration about the errors of waste transporters and dumps or other serious problems. This feature ensures that the information is updated frequently.
