The Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup uses cutting-edge litter capture technology that removes plastic of all shapes and sizes from waterways. 

The Seabin is a “trash skimmer” designed to be installed in the water of marinas, yacht clubs, ports - in fact, any water body with a calm surface environment and suitable services available for maintenance.


The unit acts as a floating garbage bin, skimming the surface of the water by pumping water into the device. The Seabin can intercept  floating debris, macro and micro plastics and even microfibres, with an additional filter.  The Seabin is also able to extract contaminated organic material (leaves, seaweed, etc…) It is easily equipped with oil absorbent pads able to absorb petroleum-based surface oils and detergents like those predominant in most marinas around the world.

The Enviropod LittaTrap™ is  a patented catch basin basket that sits inside the stormwater drain and  prevents  litter and other debris carried by stormwater from entering the storm drain system.

The trap's 5mm mesh basket is designed to capture and retain 100% of plastic and other debris over 5mm. The basket has high hydraulic conductivity - allowing water to pass through it easily - and is both lightweight and structurally robust, designed with engineered inert plastic for a 25 year lifespan.

The Searial Cleaners' PixieDrone is a floating, remote-control, mobile waste collector that can be It is equipped with a video camera and LIDAR technology to avoid obstacles when collecting floating waste.


The PixieDrone targets floating waste in all forms: organic, plastic, glass, metal, paper, rubber, etc. The waste collector drone has a maximum speed of 3 km/h, collection capacity of 160 litres, and offers up to 6 hours of operation in autonomous mode in a single charge. This drone can be operated in salt, fresh, and brackish waters.

The BeBot is an eco-friendly beach cleaning robot that mechanically sifts sand, rakes seaweed, levels sandy areas to remove plastic waste and other debris without harming the local environment.

The BeBot is 100% electric and has low sound volume -allowing it to be operated at day and night. The cleaning robot has remote control capabilities up to 150 m range, and can operate for up to 3 hours in a single charge. The BeBot has a maximum speed of 2.7 km/h, sieving capacity of 100 litres,, and a cleaning capacity of 3000 m².

The Gutter Bin® is a stormwater filtration system created by Frog Creek Parnters that prevents pollution - like trash, microplastics, sediment, oils, greases, and heavy metals from entering urban waterways.

The Gutter Bin accepts the full line of trash, debris, and sediment (TDS) Mundus Bag® water filters while its adjustable design allows for fit and installation into existing storm grates. It is easily removed for maintenance and/or TV camera access, and can be customized with functional art designs to build awareness for watershed protection and restoration.
