So, about 3 years ago, The Ocean Cleanup made their way to our shores to help clean up the absolutely trashed Klang River with their solar-powered Interceptors.

Despite 2 years worth of efforts by 2022, Klang River still seemed to be full of rubbish and litter.

Now, The Ocean Cleanup, founded by Dutch inventor and entrepreneur Boyan Slat, is sharing just how quickly the rubbish bins inside the Interceptor is filling up to the brim and honestly, it’s not that shocking considering our littering habits.

Each Interceptor has 6 bins and in December 2022, all 6 bins were full within hours.

They wrote, “We received some news from local operators in Klang, Malaysia – on 19 December, Interceptor 002’s 6 dumpsters were completely filled up in a record time of 2 hours and 27 minutes.”

“In total, this hero removed 107,000kgs of trash in December.”

 

Also, for those of you who are wondering, what happens to the rubbish after it’s collected into the Interceptors, here’s your answer.

“The waste will be taken to a local facility to be sorted into different types and separated from organic materials. We work closely with local partners on waste management plans to ensure a positive environmental impact,” they added in their Twitter thread.

 

It is truly embarrassing that, despite the help we’re getting from international parties to clean up our environment, we’re still littering and polluting our rivers.

The least we could do is stop throwing rubbish wherever we please and not make their work even harder.

What do you think about this whole situation? Do feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section.
