Garbage collector / Sea GarbGarbage collector

Garbage collector
Garbage collector

Many natural sites are overwhelmed due to massive amount of garbages brought by the seas and rivers.
As such, the idea here is a to make a collector object, which collects floated debris on the surface of water through creating a slow torque which has been generated using clean sources of energy (marine and wind energies).
In fact, the garbages will be sucked in through streams of airflow and water that spin around the center of the device.
In this way, the garbage collector is capable of collecting all garbage from the surface of sea without making any pollution itself.
