Trash Wheel SF Bay is not only an art installation, but a solar-powered innovation hailed as the first truly feasible approach to stemming the flow of ocean plastic pollution. Originating in Baltimore, Maryland, the Baltimore Trash Wheel has collected 1,477,580 lbs. since May 9, 2014. Now, an independent group of environmentally concerned Bay Area citizens is bringing a Trash Wheel to the Oakland Estuary.
