The Broward County Waterway Cleanup, organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, is the county’s largest and longest-running environmental event. The 2019 cleanup was held on Saturday, March 2, 2019, from 9 am – 1 pm. The first Waterway Cleanup was held in the late 1970s to help ensure that both the community as a whole and the marine industry could enjoy our local waterways. In 2019, over 1,400 volunteers of all ages by land and 161 boats worked at 38 locations across the county to remove over 35 tons of trash and debris from our waterways, rivers and canals. You do not need a boat to participate!
