How The Bandalong Litter Trap Works

The Bandalong Litter Trap floats on waterways, given buoyancy by exceptionally strong and durable polyethylene pipes. The unit is held in place by chains attached to ground anchors or fitted to rider poles for canal installations. Outspread collection booms direct floating litter through a one-way gate into the trap where it is retained ready for removal. Re-entrainment is prevented by a system of counterweights and paddles that close the entry gate when the water flow ceases or there is a change in flow direction due to tide or wind. A polyethylene side skirt beneath the waterline prevents debris escaping under the main floats.
