Together with Audi Brussels and the Port of Brussels, the Recycled Island Foundation and its project partner the Audi Environmental Foundation have installed a specially developed Passive Litter Trap in the harbor basin of Brussels. This plastic trap is designed so that waste floating in the water is flushed into a basin, where retention devices prevent it from being washed out again and thus ensure that no plastic reaches the open sea via the canal. The port of Brussels is already the third site for the Recycled Island project, following Rotterdam and the Indonesian island of Ambon.
Recycled Island Foundation is currently exploring several international locations for similar Litter Trap implementations. In the spring we will open a public call for further support and collaborations in this. For information you may already contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
