The Toronto-based application enables residents locate street-side items that are available to take. When leaving or detecting an item on the street one can report it on Trashswag and help other people nearby to find it.
Reporters add a picture of the item, a small description and a title. In addition they choose a category like furniture, wood/lumber/timber, building materials, architectural salvage or garage/yard sale.
The location and time are automatically added to every item and it will be shared on a map. This allows other people to roam the city for great stuff while they sit on their sofa. As soon as something of particular interest is found, one has to race to the spot and try to be the first to pick it up.
After that one can rate the credibility of the reporter via the app.
