Marina Trash Skimmer

Floating Trash: A Marina Killer

  • Over 300 billion pounds of plastics produced each year. Large amounts of plastic reach marinas where they build up, are hard to catch, and do not break down.
  • Drops of oil can spread over acres of water. Oil sheen has adverse effects on boats, wildlife, and the overall look and feel of a marina.
  • Organic debris can overwhelm marinas. Organic debris includes seaweed, logs, plants, etc. If left alone, these will sink to the bottom of a marina resulting in expensive dredging costs.

Clean Water, Happy Customers

Marina Trash Skimmers work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week collecting trash, soaking up oil sheen, and trapping floating debris. Water quality significantly improves wherever a Skimmer is located, keeping your marina clean and your customers happy.  

A Marina Manager’s Best Friend

Skimmers clean over 300 gallons of water a minute using a patented technology of water displacement. Working with the natural flow of water, each stationary unit uses less than $2/day while trapping trash and debris collected from the surrounding areas. Maintenance crews will clean fewer locations less often, while the marina stays cleaner than ever.

Keeping Marinas Clean

Surrounding waters stay healthy and clean when a Marina Trash Skimmer is in operation.

Commonly collected debris includes:

  • Styrofoam
  • Glass bottles
  • Cans and containers
  • Plastic bags and wrappers
  • Cardboard
  • Free-floating Organic Material (FOM)
  • Fishing products
  • Oil (if an oil pad is included)

Case Study: Port of San Diego – Final Report – 2011

“...this program is deemed a success because of the sheer volume of debris removed from the marina water, the increased observable clarity of the water and the satisfaction of the marinas and their tenants…”

“Each marina manager has indicated how satisfied they are with their skimmer. Not only do they improve the aesthetics of their marina but the skimmers are easy to use, silent, and save the marina time and money by reducing the marina staff’s workload.” Download the full report
