Litter-Free Deerfield Beach
Beach litter has become a major concern for the health of the oceans and the overall beauty of our community. In partnership with JM Family Enterprises, Inc., we have created the Litter-Free Deerfield Beach program to tackle this issue through citizen action.
Through this program, cleanup kits would be stationed at the Pier Bait Shop available for check-out by beach visitors. A cleanup kit would include a 2-gallon bucket for litter, gloves, and a sifter for small things in the sand. Participants can use the buckets to collect litter on and around the beach during their visit, then return them to the Pier Bait Shop when finished. Each bucket will be weighed upon return to track the impacts of the program. Participation will also be tracked, and first-timers will receive a cool sticker. Returning participants will receive a t-shirt after their 4th visit.
This program is for individuals or small groups of 2-3 volunteers only! For larger groups, please email the Department of Sustainable Management.
