Trash Guard, Inc. is a simple straightforward product to

Trash Guard meets the needs for those governmental entities who are of

A stormwater discharge is defined by the US Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) as rainwater or snowmelt runoff. These fresh waters
become polluted as they flow over modern man-made structures like roads, parking
lots, industrial sites, roofs, suburban lawns, etc. An abundance of suspended
pollutants can easily ride piggyback on sediment particles and leaves in such
water flows. Types of pollutants include road salts, calcium chloride, motor
oils and fluids, rubber, lawn fertilizers and chemicals, E. coli from house pet
feces, and many others.
