Baltimore’s Water Wheel That Gathers Trash

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is a city landmark teeming with tourists, restaurants and — until recently — floating trash.

John Kellett developed a big water wheel to collect the plastic cups, cigarette butts and Cheetos bags that flow into the waterway after rainstorms.

Kellett approached Baltimore officials about ways to remove the trash — and they listened. The water wheel is now docked in the harbor.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
