Project Goal

The “Be WaPP” Public Cleanliness Cell, for a Cleaner Wallonia, is set up with the aim of improving public cleanliness in Wallonia. It’s the result of a partnership agreement signed on 1 February 2016 between the Walloon Minister for the Environment, Spatial Planning, Mobility and Transport and Animal Welfare and the companies that sell packaged products on the Belgian market, represented by Fost Plus asbl, FEVIA asbl and Comeos asbl. This agreement aims at collaborating in the prevention and reduction of incivilities having a negative impact on public cleanliness and the living environment in Wallonia, and in particular the abandonment of waste.

• Identify and manage degradation on their equipment
• View their data on graphs and carry out different analyzes
• Display their infrastructures by category
• Perform searches by address, gps coordinates or by identification number
