Plastic Island is the second of two Islands in the Roperian Garbage Patch region and was first released on January 16, 2019.
Description: Plastic Island is an enormous floating mass of plastic trash and other discarded debris out in the middle of the ocean. Some sea creatures are attempting to live here, but it's difficult in such a polluted environment.

Unlocking Plastic Island
In order to move on to Plastic Island, you'll need to complete the first five Remediator Quests and the first five Deputy Quests in Tragedy Reef. Your poles will max out at level 55 otherwise. You must also buy a Garbage Sweeper.

How to Play
As with the Tragedy Reef, you must have a Garbage Sweeper and have an active Bounty Hunter License. They can be found after the bottom of any of the purchasing poles/add-ons/chum lists. They cost 199,999 and 49,999 silver respectively.
Using the Garbage Sweeper, you must "Sweep" the trash, which will clear out the area for 60 minutes, during which you can fish as normal. When used, it gives you a chance at finding a piece of the Garbage Cleanup Collectables set. If you have handed in this set, then the Sweep will clear out the area for much longer, and you will no longer be required to Sweep before fishing, but you can Sweep anyways to try to get more Collectables. Sweeping will also reset the timer for the Trash Trimmer in Tragedy Reef, and vice versa. It may also affect other timers in other areas.
You also need to have a Bounty Hunter License which has to be renewed every 30 days. If this is not renewed, you risk the chance of being caught by the Roperian Coast Guard, which will result in being deported to Glacier Shack and a fine of 20,000 silver. You can hand in Collectable sets to get more licenses or you might luck out and find one from sweeping/trimming. If you have licenses from handing in Collectables, be sure to Activate that one instead of selecting Renew, otherwise you'll be paying the 49,999 silver to buy a license.
You'll be able to continue on in The Story of Roperian Garbage Patch Adventure starting from Chapter 7 here.
- Forum Post #41 by Joe Faron: "Adjusted trimming to what I originally wanted.. should be about 10x less frequent after handing in a set.. whereas my last change bugged it and caused it to basically never trim."
