Ms Sideris has launched the Container Saver mobile app, which encourages |people to take photos of waste, particularly cans and bottles, and post them on the app.

In the weeks since its launch last month, people have posted photos from all over Perth and the Hills.

‘Australia is a relatively clean country, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a litter problem,’ Ms Sideris said.

‘Once you start taking photos (of litter) you realise how much litter there is.

‘Hopefully, the app will give people an overall sense of the problem.’
