Durham Trash Trap Cleanout

August 26, 2023 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Help us monitor our waterways by volunteering for litter trap clean-out! These traps sit in urban creeks and streams keeping manmade trash from entering main waterways. These devices are built to withstand the rigors of flashy rain events, yet passive enough not to harm the local fauna. Roadside littering accounts for approximately 75% of the trash in our nations waterways. Each time it rains, trash is funneled through our storm drain systems directly into our creeks. No filters or other mechanisms are in place to keep the trash from entering our waterways.
