About Us

How We're Helping


The first Baltimore Trash Wheel was installed in May of 2014 at the mouth of the Jones Falls river, the largest tributary to the city’s Inner Harbor. As of September 2018, it has removed more than 2 million pounds of trash and debris, including more than 48 tons from a single storm event. It is capable of filling a 15 cubic yard dumpster in less than 2 hours and can remove more than 50,000 pounds of solid waste per day.  

Get Involved


The San Francisco Trash Wheel was started by concerned Alameda citizen Karima Cherif in October of 2017. Since then the project was awarded a $25,000.00 which allowed us to complete the first phase of the project. We now have a site assessment report from John Kellett, the waterwheel inventor, and we are ready for phase 2 which is permitting and fundraising. Our goal is to complete manufacturing by the end of 2020, and launch the San Francisco Bay's first trash wheel in the spring of 2020!
