Memorial Day “Keep the Beach Clean” Engagement & Waterline Cleanup

It's Memorial Day weekend, and is partnering with the City of Miami Beach to engage with our visitors to keep our beaches clean. This is not a traditional beach cleanup, but our work will be vital to keep plastic out of the oceans.

  • Volunteers will hand out garbage bags to people on the beach and encourage them to carry their trash up to the garbage cans
  • Volunteers will walk along the water line picking up any plastic they see to keep it from getting into the ocean
  • Volunteers will walk around with signage encouraging people to pack out their trash and keep our beaches clean will provide all supplies needed for the cleanup (gloves, bags, buckets, pickers etc) 


We will be set up at the dune entrance to the beach at 5th Street, just passed the roundabout, and close to the 5th street bathrooms.


  • Parking will be EXTREMELY difficult, so we recommend public transit, bikes, or ride share. If you are commuting to South Beach by car, the closest parking garages on 7th and Collins,  South Point Park (1st), or 13th and Washington and are usually a flat rate of $20 per car during these peak events. Therefore, you may want to allow extra time to park further from the beach and walk 10-15 minutes to the meeting spot. The Ocean Drive area will be chaotic by car.
  • Community Service Hours offered...
  • Bring your own water in a reusable bottle (no single-use plastic please). We are carrying light this event, so we will use City provided water bottle refill fountains to refill your bottles. 
  • We will be working in groups of 4-5 people. There will be big crowds on the beach. 
  • We will provide clean gloves, garbage bags and pickers - you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer
  • Dress for the weather and wear comfortable footwear to walk on the beach and consider reef-safe sun protection and hat
