Protecting waterways
from litter since 2009.

Watch Our Story

How It All Began

Over 15 years ago, the company was formed to provide a solution to floating litter in our waterways. With over 40 years of experience in the plastic industry, the owners were compelled to act. In 2007, using the company’s manufacturing and construction capabilities, the Bandalong Litter Trap and StormX were introduced in North America.

We use corrosion and impact resistant materials so our products can withstand the most demanding conditions. No two jobs are alike, and our entire portfolio of products and services are 100% adaptable for site-specific needs and conditions.

Where We Are Now

Since the first Bandalong installation in Washington, DC in 2009, Storm Water Systems has been continuing to build successful trash trap projects all over the US within the engineering, public works, and advocacy sectors. The Bandalong Litter Trap, The Bandalong Bandit and the StormX are the proven tools to capture floating litter and debris before it reaches our oceans.

Our Goal Moving Forward

Innovation, excellence, and action have always been the guiding principles that drive Storm Water Systems to be a solutions-oriented company. By installing our litter capture devices, an immediate impact is made one waterway at a time.

What people are saying about us

Don't take our word for it, here's what others have to say.

Now that the City of Waycross has had it’s Bandalong litter trap in operation for a little over three and one-half years, I can say that it has been a total success for us…to date we have emptied 349 cubic yards of floating litter, and that is with 148.7 inches of rainfall. We feel that we are intercepting and removing at least 99% of floating litter from our canal system just before it would be entering the Satilla River, one of the most pristine black-water rivers in the State of Georgia.

We in the City of Waycross Engineering Dept. have been extremely satisfied not only with the superior build quality with which the Bandalong is crafted, but also with the first-rate service after the sale and the commitment to quality and to clean water which Storm Water Systems Inc. has demonstrated.

Advancements in technology such as the Bandalong Litter Trap allow for floating litter to be stopped in its tracks at all hours of the day, every day, free of human or energy assistance. With this investment, the District is leading the nation and making a concrete statement and commitment to clean water for decades to come.

Although our Earth Conservation Corps team has been taking trash out of the litter trap for the last 15 minutes to half-hour, it is still full… They removed all of the trash just a week ago. All of that trash has been collected in this little stream leading to the Anacostia River by the Bandalong Litter Trap in just one week… We are excited to be the first city in the Western Hemisphere to use the Bandalong Litter Trap.
