Trash Boom for Debris Containment

Customer Testimonial: Floating Boom Barriers

debris boom For 20 years now, we have owned and operated a restaurant on the banks of the Ohio River in Louisville, KY. Cleaning up property after a flood has been one of the most dreaded and costly jobs that we face. Not only because of the man hours it takes to clean up, but the cost of disposing of the debris!

We made the investment and purchased the floating trash boom from GEI Works. The trash and debris boom was delivered just in the nick of time, and as you can see from my photo, it is working wonderfully now!

It was a cinch to deploy and was delivered very timely. It's very well constructed, and I'm looking forward to the cleanup time from this flood to be cut from 3 days to about 6 hours! And as this happens about 3-4 times a year, this will be a great savings for us!
