Volunteers pick 32 tons of trash from South Florida waterways

ADVERTISEMENT

More than 1,250 volunteers on land and in 117 boats collected 32 tons of trash from South Florida waterways on March 3.

Organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) and the Marine Industry Cares Foundation, the Waterway Cleanup is the largest and longest-running environmental event in the county, having just completed its 41st edition.

The annual event results in the recovery of typical items such as tires, shopping carts and lawn furniture, but this year included some unusual items, including an air hockey table, a commode, and a sonar sounder.

Next year’s event is scheduled for March 2.
