Have you heard the news? Three “Litter Gitters” have been installed on local creeks in Charlotte!

These trash collecting devices by the Osprey Initiative, are keeping trash from going further downstream into our lakes, rivers, and the ocean.

The three Litter Gitters were installed on February 24 and 25. They are located at:

  • Revolution Park
  • Alexander Street Park
  • Ray’s Splash Planet

The installation of the Litter Gitters was made possible by the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, Envision Charlotte, Coca-Cola Consolidated, and Osprey Initiative.

Catawba Riverkeeper will be maintaining the Litter Gitters. If you’re interested in joining the team that cleans out the collection devices after rain events, contact wayne@catawbariverkeeper.org.
