“Dear PoPville,

Saw this “garbage pick-up boat” on the Anacostia yesterday. I know many readers were disgusted by the recent post showing all the trash in the river after our heavy rains, well this might make them feel better. It moves in, opens up its front “scoops” and skims out all the bottles, trash , and debris, then places it in the back. Pretty cool.”
