One cubic meter of plastic waste collected each month: cleanup in the port of Brussels

Cleanup in the port of Brussels
  • Audi Environmental Foundation and Recycled Island Foundation together with Audi Brussels and the Port of Brussels install a mobile plastic-collecting basin
  • Third project site for Recycled Island, two more to follow this year 

Together with Audi Brussels and the Port of Brussels, the Audi Environmental Foundation and its project partner Recycled Island Foundation have installed a specially developed collecting basin in the harbor basin of Brussels. This plastic trap is designed so that waste floating in the water is flushed into a net, where retention devices prevent it from being washed out again and thus ensure that no plastic reaches the open sea via the canal. The port of Brussels is already the third site for the Recycled Island project, following Rotterdam and the Indonesian island of Ambon.
