The Town of Surfside has just completed installing a series of new Fill A Bag Clean Up stations throughout the beach. Keeping our community clean has never been easier.
The stations contain signage, branded buckets and litter grabbers in an effort to encourage community participation. When visiting the beach, take a bucket and grabber tool, fill the bucket with trash, dump the trash in one of the nearby garbage cans, and replace the empty buckets and grabbers for the next person to use.
Parents and kids should note that Community Service Hours may be obtained in exchange for time donated to Fill A Bag – simply scan the QR code and follow the directions to log your time!
There are five stations located by the beach entrances:
- 88th Street
- 92nd Street
- Surfside Community Center (93rd Street)
- 95th Street
- 96th Street
The artwork featured on the station signage was designed by Surfside's own Natasha De Mier, a sixth-grader at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center.
Surfside is proud to partner with Fill A Bag on this green initiative. The nonprofit, based in Key Biscayne, has successfully launched more than 30 stations along Florida’s coast, and across the globe, in just a few short years.
