The transport of buoyant macroplastic litter in the presence of concrete groynes and vegetation in a straight channel was investigated. Four variants of channel configuration were tested during laboratory measurements. Water velocity fields were measured using ADV current meter, while floating plastic particles' paths were registered using PTV (Particle Tracking Velocimetry) technique. Preliminary research using numerical model Delft3D was carried out to reproduce the observed physical phenomena.
