The city has completed work on a $42 million project that aims to keep trash and debris out of the Newtown Creek.

The city’s Department of Environmental Protection announced yesterday that they installed litter capture devices that will improve the health and aesthetics of the creek.

The four subsurface devices capture floating litter and direct it to a wastewater treatment plant, where it can be removed and sent to landfill, the DEP said.
