Municipal and industrial garbage dumped into water bodies pollutes them and reduces waterfront property values, and inhibits waterfront activities. Existing methods of garbage removal are expensive. This article describes an inexpensive lake garbage collector designed to clean lake water. An efficient pedal-operated garbage collector (POLGC) was fabricated with a conveyor attachment in the front to collect floating waste. Accessories used include dredging rakes, water filters, sludge handling chains, weed rippers, weed catchers, etc. It was found that POLGC collects an average of 85 kg garbage per day. 46% increase in the garbage collection was observed with POLGC when compared with weed rake at Pushkar ghat.
