Abstract: Nowadays, mobile application development offers an innovative field for modernization. However, we cannot deny that we are facing the greatest environmental challenge, wastes management. Opportunities in enhancing the community’s waste management practices have become easier with the progress of mobile application development. This paper aims to support every individual in strengthening their waste management practices within the community. The study focuses on designing a mobile application as an innovative IT solution in helping the community in improving its waste management. The researcher used a co-design methodology to define the content features, system requirements and to identify the user of the system. This framework and design consideration are recommended for utilization and implementation, to aid every member of the community in their waste management practices through an innovative solution. The result of the study helps individuals appreciate the importance of emerging technology in the solution to climate change. This shows that IT innovation is a great opportunity in improving the waste management habits of every individual. Somehow, this study helps individuals to recognize the importance of mobile technology as a solution to global concerns associated with climate change.
