The Marine LitterWatch App looks great. Can it be used by communities in non-coastal areas as well or is it only for collecting data at beach locations? If the latter, is there an alternative App that can be used, for non-coastal communities to capture data about litter in their local area as well? Many thanks.

Yes, also non-coastal communities can join MLW. As a good example: The Swiss Litter Report project collecting litter data from lakes and rivers in Swiss (see MLW Tableau data viewer). But including more non-coastal communities and collection of litter from lakes and rivers will (could) lead also to "other things to do" (items list, methodologies, etc.). Otherwise your are more than welcome. There are some other apps you can use such as TrashOut app available at:
Kind regards,
