Keep Broward Beautiful- Beach Sweep
Agency: Keep Broward Beautiful (from the Volunteer Broward website)
Volunteers are needed to help remove litter from Hollywood North Beach Park. Recyclables collected will be separated and disposed of in the new recycling bins located along the beach area. Volunteers may also help promote the new beach recycling program to beach goers, and pass out educational material.
Volunteers must wear proper cleanup attire. T-shirts and shorts are acceptable. No flip flops. All volunteers must wear close-toed shoes. Volunteers wearing flip flops will not be allowed to participate. Minimum age to volunteer is eight (8), and an adult must accompany all minors. All volunteers must complete the Broward Workday Application before volunteering. Volunteers are recommended to wear a hat and sunscreen, and bring their own water. With the South Florida heat, a snack is also a good idea to bring.
Trash bags and gloves will be provided. A short safety meeting with cleanup directions will be given prior to the cleanup on the day of the event by staff. Look for the VOLUNTEERS banner at the sign-in table. Carpooling is highly recommended. Not only is it a good thing for the environment, but free parking at the beach is very limited.
If you have any additional questions regarding the Beach Sweep Program email Litterprevention@broward.org or call the Litter Hotline at 954-474-1835.
