The LittaTrap is an innovative catch basin insert designed to be
easily retrofitted into new and existing stormwater infrastructure to
specifically target plastic, trash, and debris, capturing
them at source and preventing them from entering our waterways. The LittaTrap is a low cost,
easily hand maintained solution for 100% capture of particles
larger than 5mm.
The LittaTrap is also effective as a pre-treatment device for use
in a treatment train with hydrodynamic separators, filtration
devices, ponds, and wetlands. In many cases, it is often the most
practical solution for retrofits.
How does it work?
Placed inside the stormwater catch basin, the LittaTrap
captures and retains plastic and trash larger
than 5mm that are caught up in the stormwater runoff. Once
the filter bag is full, it can be simply lifted out and emptied.
If the screening bag is full or there are high flows, overflow is
released through the overflow apertures in the frame assembly.
The LittaTrap is a low-cost solution to prevent plastic pollution in our waterways and can be easily installed into new or existing drainage infrastructure.
Installing a LittaTrap in a catch basin, captures & retains plastic & trash that would normally be washed down the stormwater drain and out into waterways.
