More than 2,000 volunteers spread across Ft. Lauderdale’s Broward County on Saturday and pulled about 40 tons of trash from the region’s rivers during the 40th Annual Broward County Waterway Cleanup. Organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, the clean up attracted more than 100 boats and hauled some interesting items, including lumber, waterlogged cushions, some money and an ankle monitor.
