Everyone has a role to play in solving our Marine Debris Problem, and that includes local, state, and federal governments.
VolunteerCleanup.Org has been heavily involved in our local governments - both elected officials and city staff. We would be happy to discuss the best practices and legislative changes we have made here in Miami Beach and other cities.
- Styrofoam Bans (sale and use)
- Establishing TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load) for floatables and plastic debris
- Recycling ordinances
- Fine increases
- Landscaping ordinances (impacts storm drain clogging)
