Talkin’ Trash Tuesday: The new WaterGoat may be the GOAT in catching trash
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - In today’s Talkin’ Trash Tuesday, the new WaterGoat trash collection system in waterways across our state.
Palmetto Pride announced last year a special grant to fund 25 WaterGoats across South Carolina.
The anti-litter nonprofit is providing WaterGoat trash collection systems to stop trash and debris from flowing downstream, thus, preventing litter and plastic from eventually entering our oceans. The WaterGoat is a floating trash trap designed to catch litter and protect wildlife.
Joe Berry is the special projects manager for Palmetto Pride. He joined WIS Midday to explain how the system works.
