Long Beach has already installed hundreds of these devices and will receive a portion of the new federal funds.
"The vast majority of the trash that ends up on our beaches is generated by the upstream cities, and these funds will make a huge difference in stopping trash before it even enters the Los Angeles River. This is a great step in the right direction," said Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster in a news release.
The other cities set to receive funding include Bell, Commerce, Compton, Downey, Huntington Park, Lynwood, Montebello, Paramount, Pico Rivera, South Gate and Vernon.
