Glass and plastic are sorted from the collected garbage

In Kharkiv, on Friday, July 29, the basket of the Trash Killer garbage collector, which cleans the Uda River, was completely cleaned.

More than 20 tons of various garbage were caught 8 months after installation, eco-activist Artem Prykhodko reports on Facebook.

The previous removal took place a month and a half ago.

Prykhodko noted that this hydraulic structure has proven itself to be very effective, because it worked reliably in critical conditions both in summer and in winter.

The trash collected from the Trash Killer is sorted, namely, glass and plastic are removed from it, and organic residues are sent to rot.

Prykhodko is responsible for the maintenance and removal of garbage, and Kharkiv communal workers take care of the collector. The manipulator is rented at the expense of the "For People from People" fund.

"We are making Kharkiv's rivers clean," Prykhodko noted.

Earlier, EcoPolitic worte, that in Kharkiv, the Trash Killer garbage collector was clogged to the brim with garbage from the Uda River in 7 weeks. Its basket is 150% full.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, technological eco-startup Ecola talked about four efficient garbage collectors, that collect plastic in rivers around the world. Kharkiv was also on the list Trash Killer.
