Asheville GreenWorks Launches Second Generation Trash Trout™

Asheville GreenWorks just launched their second generation Trash Trout™ Litter Capturing Device. This next generation trap includes a host of improvements that will extend the working life of the device as well as making river cleanup faster and more efficient and protect downstream waterways.

  • All aluminum build to extend the life of the trap
  • New fold-away rear gate for flood stage events
  • Reinforced pontoons with gravel guard rails
  • Removal of the lower box frame to reduce the amount of woody debris captured

The devices are built to sit passively in urban waterways to capture stormwater driven litter and keep it from flowing into our rivers. The design doesn’t use mesh in either the top or bottom of the trap to keep wildlife from being captured.
