There’s an insanely effective new way to remove trash from large bodies of water and it involves a giant metal trash monster that eats it all. Sounds made up, right? Well, it’s very real and it’s very effective.
Named ‘Mr. Trash Wheel,’ this machine has removed over 1,000,000 pounds of garbage from Baltimore Harbor. It even removed 12 dumpsters worth of trash in under 48 hours. This thing doesn’t even need gas to run – it only needs water and solar power.
Multiple major cities around the world, including many here in the U.S., have taken notice of the machine’s effectiveness and area making plans to get one of their own.
It looks like Captain Planet has some competition.
