Floating Trash Boom for Lake
Debris Boom for Litter and Debris Control in Lakes
Question: I am looking for a floating trash boom for lake usage. I need a floating boom that can control small debris, trash, and other items that may begin to float around the lake. The area is a frequent spot for visitors and they often leave trash around which then falls into the lake. We are trying to limit the amount of contamination. Do you have this product?

Debris Boom Deployment
Since you mentioned that your main concern is control from the shores of your lake, the best option would be for you to deploy this floating barrier along your shore line. This will allow the trash boom to function as a type of barrier.
Once in place, debris items can be cleaned up through the use of trash skimmers, vacuum trailers, or harvesters. However, due to the location of your trash boom, debris is likely to wash back up onto your shores allows you to clean up the debris as it washes up.
Other Trash Booms
In addition to this standard floating barrier, we also offer several other trash booms including a permanent control model, a steel mesh barrier, and a trash net boom that can additionally control items underneath the surface of the water.
