You see an abandoned on the city street. You list it. Anyone can claim it. Basically we've developed an app that whenever you see something like a couch, TV, BBQ, etc. that's been dumped on a street corner, you whip out your iPhone and take a picture of it. The item goes onto a big map, so that anyone can browse and get it for free!
