Garbage Be Gone


The Trash Interceptor aims to give our cities’ maintenance crews a break by making it a cinch to clean all that gunk out of our drainage systems. Loads of garbage often accumulates in urban sewer systems and cleaning staff need to open the fences to clear away the garbage, which is both difficult and time-consuming.

The Trash Interceptor offers a clean and fast way of cleaning. In just one single step workers can collect the garbage in the sewer. The container is mounted below the sewer cleaning hole and features an outside support structure. The inner collection basket is suspended in the water and collects garbage and sediment. When the basket is full, the cleaning staff can simply lift the handle with one hand, spin the reels to close the basket and dispose of the garbage.
