Waiting / Collect marine garbage


This is a device that uses natural forces to collect marine litter. The device is placed on top of the existing shark prevention net, and the waste that drifts with the seawater is collected into the storage tank, which is inside the device by the structure of the one-way revolving door. It is possible to collect garbage without resorting to any unnatural forces and relying only on ocean currents.
