Learning the best practices at the Keep America Beautiful Annual Conference!! One of the most unique things we have learned about is Mr. Trash Wheel!! This Inner Harbor water wheel combines old and new technology to harness the power of water and sunlight to collect litter and debris flowing down the Jones Falls River. The river’s current provides power to the wheel, which lifts trash and debris from the water and deposits into a dumpster barge. When there isn’t enough water current, solar panels provide additional power to keep the machine running. When the dumpster of full, it’s towed away by boat and a new dumpster is put in place. Mr. Trash Wheel has collected over 1 million pounds of trash since being installed in 2014! #kabplacemaking #innovativedesign #cleanwaterways . . . . . #keepkatybeautiful #keeptexasbeautiful #keepamericabeautiful #cleanyourblock #dosomethingbeautiful
