Bandalong Litter Trap
The Original Litter Trap
The proven solution for floatables control
Bandalong Litter TrapTM is designed to float in waterways in order to capture litter before it flows farther downstream by using the current to guide debris into the trap. This performance floatable control technology continuously operates 365 days a year without any mechanical assistance to capture floating litter. The Bandalong is a proven, cost-effective solution for floatables control and is the answer to the growing problem of litter in our waterways. The Bandalong Litter Trap is the ideal in-stream solution for floatables where combined sewer overflows are concerned. The Bandalong Litter Trap has been cleaning waterways in Australia and Asia for more than 18 years.

“Until the emergence of the Bandalong Litter Trap, a solution to the problem of litter from urban runoff had eluded the City and fellow Satilla River stakeholders. The Bandalong system was simple to install, requiring minimal stream buffer encroachment and no impact on the regulatory floodway, which made it economical to deploy. To date, it has performed without a glitch, providing a simple, low maintenance means of intercepting litter.” – Frank Baugh, P.E. City Engineer, Waycross, Georgia
