In 2015, the City of Baltimore launched a waste water wheel named Mr. Trash Wheel into the Inner Harbor to help clean up waste from the harbor. Shortly after that in 2016, the city unveiled a second waste water wheel named Professor Trash Wheel, which is smaller than the original waste water wheel and operates more quickly because it’s collecting small pieces of trash.
Now, the Maryland Port Administration is launching two more trash wheels that will be installed at Port Covington and Masonville Cove in Maryland. The Port Covington wheel will be installed by the end of this year, and the Masonville Cove wheel will be installed by February 2018.
