The Seabin is a floating rubbish bin that is located in the water at marinas, docks, yacht clubs and commercial ports. The seabin moves up and down with the range of tide collecting all floating rubbish. Water is sucked in from the surface and passes through the catch bag inside the Seabin. The water is then pumped back into the marina leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag to be disposed of properly. The Seabin also has the potential to collect a percentage of oils and pollutants floating on the water surface. Seabins are powered by 12 volt submersible water pumps and have the options to use alternative power as a source. This may be using solar, wave or wind power technology depending on geographical location and current technologies available. The Seabin however, is only one small part of a larger solution in the battle against global oceanic littering with the real solution being education. That’s why we have Seabin Project, to address the problem at hand and also implement steps for a better educated and informed future for our oceans and environment.

The Solution

The issue of marine litter is one that will have to be dealt with for generations to come and therefore we need to provide the knowledge, tools and capacities to the decision-makers of the future, our children. Education is the first step to lasting and effective solutions. With marine litter, children can play a direct and significant role in reducing the sheer amount entering the oceans. Every child who learns to dispose of trash properly can be one less “source” person littering and they have the potential to spread the word to friends and family virally amplifying the effect.

The real solution: Education
From the beginning, the team at Seabin Project understood that the Seabins are not the solution, but education is the real solution in the end. By understanding this, Seabin Project have developed an open source education program based on interaction with and without the Seabin technology.


Is an instructional booklet with a series of lessons suitable for schools to learn more about the oceanic littering problem. From lessons and data collection to activities on how to design and build products and technology, this is the real way forward as a solution.

The GAP has been implemented by Seabin Projects pilot partners and these partners will be leading by example in having local schools, sports groups and environmental groups interacting with the Seabin technology. Data collection and research using the Seabin’s by the pilot partners all helps to build our base data and to develop more educational programs in better understanding the floating waste problem in our oceans.

Research, Innovation & Knowledge
To constantly upgrade our products to get better at what we do and to generate the least amount of impact possible. Establishing a solid marine litter research program in collaboration with top scientific institutions and reputed experts around the world.

Research, innovation and knowledge

The team at Seabin Project are constantly learning as it is a new technology and a new sector in the marine and environmental industry. To stay at the forefront of developing new technologies, Seabin Project have multiple programs and initiatives underway.

From renewable energy to recycling captured ocean plastics into the manufacturing of the Seabins, it’s an extremely exciting section of the Seabin Project. Partnering with industry leaders and innovators, with universities and environmental groups world wide, the team at Seabin Project will be developing more technologies to be adapted to future Seabin models and aim at getting off the dock and into the waters.
