Drainage sewers are essential in city environments where water runoff needs to be channeled to prevent flooding; the Trash Interceptor helps work with them to keep them running smoothly.

Being that sewers catch water as it flows over city streets, they are also privy to collecting various bits of trash that become trapped in the space consistently. The Trash Interceptor works by acting as a filter for underground water ways to help ensure that trash can be filtered out of the system to prevent it from making its way to open water. Moreover, it could help to prevent clogs from occurring by enabling city staff to routinely clean the filter at street level.

The Trash Interceptor drainage sewer filter is the design work of Huang Yi-Chang.
