Trash Collecting Device Returned To Pacific Garbage Patch

A giant floating, trash collecting boom is en-route to return to the Pacific ocean after necessary repairs. Initially placed between California and Hawaii in 2018, the boom broke apart due to constant wind and wave pressure and had to be brought back to mainland for service. The 2,000 foot device is now ready to return to the high seas and expected to collect five tons of plastic trash every month. The project aims to clean up what is known as the Pacific Garbage Patch, a widespread issue of marine debris in the Pacific Ocean.
