Seabin Devices Will Be Installed in Lake Erie

Keep Ohio Beautiful (KOB) has partnered with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Ohio Sea Grant and the Ohio Clean Marinas & Clean Boaters Programs to provide Seabins — a network of automated litter and debris removal devices — across the Lake Erie region. The funding for installing and maintaining four Seabin devices came from several Keep America Beautiful grants.

“Our exciting new collaboration with KOB and Ohio Sea Grant enables ODNR to use new technology to continue our efforts to protect the waters of Lake Erie,” says ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft’s Chief Glen Cobb. “Not only will boaters benefit by the removal of litter and debris, but cleaner waters are critical for all users.”

Two Seabins will be located at the Geneva Marina in Geneva and Mentor Harbor Yacht Club in Mentor. An additional two will be placed at marinas located near Huron and Lorain.
