The Ocean Clean Up works in both oceans and rivers cleaning out garbage that has been dumped. There are 5 main garbage patches, the biggest being Great Pacific Garbage Patch between California and Hawaii. They clean up the oceans by creating an artificial coastline with a fleet of boats driving parallel to each other on opposite sides of a patch to concentrate the plastics and extract it from the oceans and recycle the plastics to create sunglasses to help fund removing trash from the ocean. For rivers they use something called an Inceptor to prevent plastic from entering the rivers and streaming into our oceans. The Inceptor is 100% solar powered and autonomously extracts plastic from the rivers. It can remove 50,000kg of plastic per day, which equals 110,231lbs of plastic
