Captain Trash Wheel will begin operating in 2018 in Masonville Cove, a dredged material containment facility owned by the port administration, the administration said last month.
It will join the city’s growing fleet of trash-collecting devices, which have also become local personalities.
The original, Mr. Trash Wheel, made its debut in the Inner Harbor in 2014 and has since removed more than 1 million pounds of trash from the city’s waterways. The Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore’s Healthy Harbor Initiative followed that up with a Professor Trash Wheel in Canton in December. Another is planned for Gwynns Falls.
