|That's it--Mr Trash Wheel|
Anyhow, I read on AwesomeOcean,org, that Baltimore now has a water wheel that sits at the mouth of the Jones Fall River and removes massive amounts of garbage from the water.
Since 2014, Mr Trash Wheel (the name could have used work) has removed over a million pounds of debris from the Inner Harbor.
That comes to 8.9 million cigarette butts, half a million potato chip bags, bottles, and you name it. and probably things you would not want to name.
It can scoop up 50,000 pounds of trash a day---which is then sent to an incinerator to power Maryland homes.
If the river current does not deliver up enough stuff, it also has solar panels to power it.
A second one is now in the planning stages and money is being raised.
Could work in a lot of situations, right?
