Osprey Initiative is proud to announce new Litter Gitter sites to capture floating litter in waterways.
The Osprey team installed the Litter Gitters along the Gulf Coast in Biloxi, Mississippi. The sites are Keegan Bayou and Bayou Auguste.
These sites are made possible through an EPA Trash Free Waters Grant and partnership with the city of Biloxi and Mississippi State University Coastal Extension Program. The exact
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.
