These Water Trash Boats Collect Waste And Trim Weeds In Rivers

These Water Trash Boats Collect Waste And Trim Weeds In Rivers

These boats collect trash and trim aquatic weeds in rivers and lakes to keep them healthy and clean.

The skimmers are like underwater lawnmowers that control the excessive aquatic plant growth and also collect up to 700 cubic feet of trash every day.



The project by Cleantec Infra uses skimmers manufactured by Aquarius Systems to manage the waterways as part of India’s $3 billion cleanup plans.

The conveyor belt gets submerged to cut the nuisance vegetation and also collects any free-floating weeds and garbage back into the boat’s storage area.

Once the trash skimming and weed harvesting is complete, the waste gets unloaded to a dump truck, leaving the waterways tidy and trash free.
