Garbage can accumulate in urban sewer systems, it takes a lot of efforts to clean it, a special cleaning crew is required to open the fences and manually clear solid waste. Trash Interceptor has been designed to make the task easier and less time-consuming work. It’s a special designed basket that can be mounted in the sewer, it has outside support structure and with a single step, a cleaning worker can collect the garbage out of sewer simply by lifting the basket.
The inner collection basket is suspended in the water, it’ll automatically collect solid garbage and sediment. When the basket is full, a cleaning worker can pull the handle with one hand, spin the reels to close the basket and dispose the garbage. With regular maintenance, like twice a day, this concept project can prevent sewer system clog.
