Litter Trap, Brussels
Together with Audi Brussels and the Port of Brussels, Recycled Island Foundation and its project partner Audi Environmental Foundation have installed a specially developed passive Litter Trap in the harbor basin of Brussels. Waste floating in the water is flushed into a basin, where retention devices prevent it from being washed out again, and thus ensure that no plastic reaches the open sea via the canal. The Port of Brussels is already the third site for a Recycled Island Litter Trap, following Rotterdam and the Indonesian Island of Ambon. Recycled Island Foundation is currently internationally exploring several locations for similar Litter Trap implementations.
