FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE November 8, 2016
NEW VERSION OF FREE APP ALLOWS SMARTPHONE USERS TO CONTINUE REPORTING ILLEGAL DUMPING
To download the app, enter “Doña Ana County” in the app store search bar.
Residents and visitors to Doña Ana County can continue to discreetly and anonymously report illegal dump sites thanks to the launch of a new version of the ‘NoThrow’ smartphone app.
The free app allows users to keep Doña Ana County beautiful by snapping a photo of an illegal dump site.
After a few short steps, the photo and location of the dump site is reported to Doña Ana County Codes Enforcement officials using the phone’s GPS location.
‘NoThrow’ has been available on both the iOS and Android market, but a new version has recently been developed by Dona Ana County’s Information Technology Department that will continue to allow users to keep Dona Ana County beautiful.
The new ‘NoThrow’ app will require users to uninstall the old version and replace it with the new.
The new ‘NoThrow’ app incorporates the previous functionality in a more user-friendly format. It also includes an inset map showing the user’s current location and maintains history of previous reports sent using the ‘NoThrow’ app.
To download the new app, enter ‘Dona Ana County’ (without the quotation marks) in the app store search bar.
Illegal dumping also can be reported by calling 1-877-NO-THROW.
