In Brief

São Paulo’s State Bureau for the Environment teamed up with Sergio Motta Institute to create a mashup website displaying the location of e-waste collection centers across the city.

The citizens of São Paulo will soon be able to find the location of an e-waste collection center in just a few clicks. The project, a partnership between the Secretaria do Meio Ambiente (São Paulo’s State Bureau for the Environment) and Instituto Sergio Motta (Sergio Motta Institute), a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of creative applications for technology and telecommunications, consists of a mashup website called E-lixo, (E-waste) linking a database of e-waste collection centers to the Google Maps platform.
