The device "harnesses ocean currents and wind patterns (rotating systems called "gyres") that circulate plastic naturally. (The) design, which is fixed to the seabed, has two 30-mile booms in a V-shape, which funnel debris into a central collecting column."

60 miles is a problem. Also, what about trash that doesn't float? And animal impact?
