Trash racks

Trash racks

Trash racks are put in place along waterways to filter out litter. The racks are emptied and cleaned whenever it rains.

Occasionally, baskets are damaged through vandalism or from large objects coming down the storm water system.

Repairs are arranged promptly by the Council's Asset Services staff.

To report damage, contact the Customer Centre on (08) 8406 8222.

Gross pollutant traps

Gross pollutant traps usually combine a trash rack or screen, which removes floating debris and litter from the water flow, and a sedimentation basin, that allows much of the suspended solids to settle out.
