    So, what happens to the trash after it is collected? Is there an attempt to recycle or does it just go to the nearest landfill?

    this should be installed everywhere honestly…

    Cars don’t have trash cans, businesses no longer have trash cans in front or on their property, and if you use someone else’s dumpster you can get in trouble. Litterbugs are a problem too. Making garbage difficult to dispose of is a big part of the problem.

    We also need to educate the public to not litter.

    This man should be given a Presidential Medal of Freedom for his ingenious work and dedication with this someday

    This is really a fantastic invention. I applaud you! The shame is that if people would just man up and PROPERLY recycle, and/or dispose of their used items, things like this would not be necessary.

    Really wish Mr. Trash Wheel would eat the litterers instead of just the trash though.

    As much as we applaud this kind of thing, does it merely give us a false sense of security? The only real solution is to reduce this pollution at the source, and to reduce plastic consumption in the first place

    What sort of people/society are you? Last week I took a jet ski ride on Warta river in Poland – almost 130 kms (80 miles) – I have not seen a single piece of trash in the river for the duration of all that trip!

    Well – but it’s only people of one ethnicity, currently hated in your country, that live on the banks of that river!

    Looks just like the Ocean Cleanup ones…except Cuter. Great Minds Do think Alike.

    Put grates over the storm drains to prevent bulk trash from getting to the river

    Isnt this the same or similar device as the ocean clean up project??? Like it looks similar – crazy similar. But good for the community. Clean the trash, now clean the water itself.

  40. That American

    June 14, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    I see there is no mention of the new Plants Pioneered in Australia that can take all that plastic and single stream it through a process that turns it back into the oil from whence it came. Now all you have to do is get the litterbugs to stop being litter bugs.

  41. John Bernardin

    June 14, 2021 at 7:28 pm

    “A major shift in the plastic producing industry”?!!! What about PEOPLE using plastic bottles and styrofoam cups, etc, etc, etc… and just tossing them on the ground or not being careful to make sure they’re recycled properly! Don’t blame the litterbugs!!! No no no!!! It’s all some heartless cooperation, or coffee shop with to-go cups, or Costco selling cases of water bottles!

  42. hausaffe

    why no of the shelf screens on the outflows of the storm drains

  43. mokong kumag

    June 14, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    This is all awesome until when you realized that maybe only 10-20% of those plastic thrash are gonna be recycled and most of them will be dumped on other countries
