Discipline: Product

A lot of garbage often accumulates in urban sewer systems and cleaning staff need to open the fences to clear away the garbage, which is a difficult and time-consuming work. The Trash Interceptor offers a clean and fast way of cleaning. In just one single step workers can collect the garbage in the sewer. The container is mounted below the sewer cleaning hole and features an outside support structure. The inner collection basket is suspended in the water and collects garbage and sediment. When the basket is full, the cleaning staff can lift the handle with one hand, spin the reels to close the basket and dispose of the garbage.

Garbage in a street sewer system is a main problem. This product can help collect garbage easily. Also, constant maintenance can prevent that the sewer system clog.
Jury Statement
I am glad to contribute to the maintenance of the urban environment. Design should apply itself to real-life problems and provide positive changes to our everyday life.
