    Trash interceptor - GIF, patent, photo

    Variety of trash interceptors.



    The anthropomorphized one with googly eyes is "Mr. Trash Wheel", at work in Baltimore, Maryland's Inner Harbor:



    The inventor of Mr. Trash Wheel is John Kellett, for which he was awarded US patent #20070158253 A1.

    That's an app, not a patent.

    What a shame these needed to be invented. Local creek has a huge trash screen down at estuary entrance that has to be cleaned weekly, every one or two days during rainy season. Rubbish drops dramatically every school holidays,(three high schools, an intermediate and two primarys),and the streets are clean as well. Ironically the school brats write letters to the local paper about how the planet needs to be saved from pollution.
    I grew up when being labeled a litter bug meant you would be ostracized. Amazingly none of these fine future leaders can make the correlation between dropping rubbish NEXT to a rubbish bin or throwing it out of a car window and trash on the street and beaches. That's modern education I suppose.

    It sure is disheartening how morals have degraded over the last few decades... I own a piece of property next to a high school stadium (in New Mexico), and the litter there is atrocious. I understand that in Japan and Switzerland there are no janitors in the schools to clean up after the kids, as it is part of their education to clean up after themselves. You can really see the results in how clean their societies are.

    You could never implement anything like that here in the USA, kids have been known to call child protective services on their parents for even asking them to clean up their rooms

    Good call. I fixed the link so that it now correctly points to the patent grant.
