Carlow Regional Youth Services have been working on a project to prevent pollution on the River Burrin in Carlow.
They have made a huge floating device from disused goal post nets and plastic bottles that they have put on the river to capture the rubbish and plastic and all of the undesirable debris that flows through the Burrin to the Barrow and on to our seas.
The Green Team from The Vault installed the litter catcher last week and the pilot project is to capture waste that is thrown into our river and to help to prevent pollution of the waterways.
Amazing work by @CarlowYouth as the #greenteam from the vault installed their litter catcher today! This pilot project captures river waste & helps to prevent pollution of the rivers Burren & Barrow #inCarlow.#climateaction @WatersProgramme @preventwaste @TidyTownsIre @CarlowPPN pic.twitter.com/dKwpXAICXn— CarlowCountyCouncil (@Carlow_Co_Co) June 27, 2019
