Dawar App strives to solve Egypt’s garbage mess with a snap of a button

Dawar app is a new initiative that aims to solve Egypt’s garbage dilemma with the help of technology. The app enables you to take a picture of the waste, upload it to the app and the team would then have it removed.

Dawar App is available for download on the App Store and Google Play.

“The App is currently beta testing in Maadi and soon to expand.” said Amr Fathi, the app developer in a comment on Facebook.
