Our contributors

This is the list of all contributors whose information is already available in the App. There are many more contributors who have helped compile the data for their city but the city is not released yet and others are currently working on collecting all the data for their hometown. We’ll be adding to this list when new cities are available in the app.

Help us make this an even better resource for Zero Wasters and become a contributor as well. Want to contribute with the data for your city? Get in contact! Or you can contribute with your translating skills by becoming a Volunteer Translator.
