The Magnet Kings

Magnetkungarna Look what they found Trash of the day
You wouldn't believe how much crap the "Magnet Kings", or Magnetkungarna will fish out of the waters around Stockholm. Peter Johansson and Jörgen Hallberg started the clean-up project at Örnsberg where they both live. They have been doing this for a long time now. At thirty different places around Stockholm. They have found bicycles, e-scooters, the odd revolver and many more items. I remember reading an interview where they said that they hoped to one day find the revolver that killed Olof Palme. Here they are at Tantolunden a few days ago. Not sure what they found here, but they can lift very heavy objects with the help of their powerful magnets. I waited around for a while, but they couldn't get whatever it was out of the water.

It's a never ending project for them.

There are a couple of guys who do that in the harbour here too. It is a good idea and an adventure for them.

That's a lot of work.

That's a very good thing they do, good to clean up waters.

That's an interesting project! I could go for that if I were 50 years younger!
