Debris Boom Placement

Due to the wide variety of areas where these booms have been used, there are a couple of different ways you could deploy your boom in order to contain debris in your location.

Debris Boom by GEI Works contains or blocks debris, depending on how you configure it on your job siteOption 1:
The first way you could deploy this boom would be along the shore line. If installed here, debris will wash up naturally along shores, making it much easier to clean up. This method is often used lakes, ponds and banks that are looking to prevent debris from leaving the shore line and spreading throughout the water area.

Option 2:

Another common debris boom placement is at the entrance of your water area. If placed in this location, debris will be contained before it floats out into the middle of your entire water area. This will give you a smaller location for collecting items and help prevent pollution before it occurs.

Debris Collection

Debris that collects along booms or shorelines can be collected using any of the following products:

  • Trash Skimmer
  • Removable Trash Basic
