The Mayor of Yaiza has highlighted the improved communication between the municipality and its residents through the Línea Verde app.
The app connects the residents directly with the cleaning services of the municipality, allowing the users to report mess or litter at the click of a button; which greatly cuts down on response times.
According to the app, the cases most reported are the dumping of waste in inappropriate areas (23%), faulty street lamps (19%), potholes (10%), dumped furniture (9%) and sewage (5%).
The Yaiza City Council are satisfied with the use of the app and stated that it “demonstrates the involvement and interest of the residents in their municipality.”.
If you wish to use the app, simply search for “Línea Verde” in the Google Play or Apple store. The download is completely free.
When downloaded, simply choose the municipality in which you wish to report an incident and send. The APP, by using your location, will automatically locate the area in question and a team will be sent when possible.
