Cleaning Mobile – Together!

Friends from Groundwork Atlanta, the City of Atlanta, West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, and U.S. EPA Region 4 were in town last week to learn about projects transforming the Three Mile Creek Watershed from a community liability into a community amenity.

The Osprey Initiative team shared our approach to tackling the global challenge of litter using One Mile Creek as an example. We’re installing Litter Gitter devices to stop downstream litter flow and capturing data to determine sources and develop solutions. Collaborating with our partners and developing tactical approaches is key!

We also educated this group by demonstrating the EPA’s Escaped Trash Assessment Protocol. We collect the materials, sort them to capture data, and then develop a plan for secondary use of these materials. This includes working with local Materials Recycling Facilities to recycle as much of the litter we collect.

What We Offer

The patented Litter Gitter is a tactical in-stream litter collection device used to intercept floating litter from stormwater runoff. The Osprey team handles all aspects of installing and maintaining these “trash traps” and compiles data on the items caught in them, recycling as much of the litter as possible.
