Osprey Initiative is proud to announce new Litter Gitter sites to capture floating litter in waterways.
The Osprey team installed two new Litter Gitters in Arkansas at Little Osage Creek going into Osage Park and Clear Creek going into Lake Fayetteville.
These sites are made possible through a partnership with Osage Creek partners Osage Park, City of Bentonville, Peel Compton, Coca-Cola North America, Illinois River Watershed Partnership; and Clear Creek partners city of Fayetteville, Fayetteville Parks & Rec, Lake Fayetteville, Coca-Cola North America, Illinois River Watershed Partnership.
The Litter Gitter is a patented, 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.
The data collected will drive litter abatement plans for Osprey partners to stop litter at its source.
