Community Spring Clean During SNAPtember

The Waimakariri Council is partnering with Snap Send Solve to host a SNAPtember promotion, giving app users the chance to win $500 each week by reporting issues to the Council.

Residents can automatically enter the prize draw by reporting the issue of the week with the Snap Send Solve app throughout the month of September.

  • Week 1: Dumped Rubbish
  • Week 2: Graffiti
  • Week 3: Overgrown Vegetation

Every time a user reports an issue of the week, they will go in the running to win $500 - full terms and conditions can be found on the Snap Send Solve website.

Snap Send Solve is a smartphone app which makes reporting issues easy. It's supported by many Councils, including Waimakariri District Council, and allows residents to instantly report issues such as potholes, vandalism, litter or damaged footpaths to the relevent local authority directly from their mobile phone.

When the app is used to take a photo of an issue, the location is also captured using the phone's GPS data. It then sends an email to the Council with the incident type, location of the incident and the photo of the issue. The report is then allocated to the relevant Council department to follow up.
