Introducing Professor Trash Wheel

Having raised over $550,000, Professor Trash Wheel is expected to be in place by the end of the year

professortrashwheelThe Canton Trash Wheel is on track to be installed before the end of the year thanks to donations from the Pedersen Family and the Abell Foundation in addition to funds raised at our Trash Wheel “baby shower” hosted at the Baltimore Marriott Hotel.

Professor Trash Wheel will be located at the end of Harris Creek where she is expected to collect thousand of pounds of trash each month. She has a degree in trash studies with a focus on the Chesapeake Bay and her dream is to educate Baltimore kids about what they can do to help clean up the Baltimore Harbor.

Our first Trash Wheel, known as “Mr. Trash Wheel”, has collected more than 483 tons of trash since taking his place in the Inner Harbor on May 9, 2014.
