Use Curb Side Goodies app to share information about goods spotted on the curb, by snapping a photo and using GPS coordinates to quickly and easily post free items. Fully functional website and an iPhone app are available. Android app coming soon!
OpenData sources used
The app connects with the City of Ottawa OpenData to coordinate the garbage day with an area the item is posted in. The app will automatically remove the ads for the areas where a waste disposal truck has passed.
The value it provides to residents
Reduce amount of waste going to landfill, recycling of usable goods, sharing information about free stuff. Users can snap photos on any street of the city or post their own items in front of the house.
Looks great! To make it even better, you should consider linking with freecycle.org (http://groups.freecycle.org/OttawaON-Freecycle/posts/all), and other free posts on sites like usedottawa
