City helps keep our beaches clean

The City of Sunny Isles Beach was happy to help out on Saturday, September 15th with the Annual Miami-Dade Coastal Clean-Up. The United States Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary not only coordinated the event for Sunny Isles Beach, but also were part of the cleaning efforts. The Sunny Isles Beach Ocean Rescue Division set up a base location at Samson Oceanfront Park and helped out by providing water and other supplies necessary to make the event run smoothly.

A lifeguard was assigned to the group, standing by to assist with any needs. We were also honored with a visit from Rear Admiral Baumgartner for the 7th Coast Guard District, along with his Chief of Staff.

The City of Sunny Isles Beach always strives to keep our beach clean. At this event, with the help of approximately 35 volunteers of all ages and with an action plan in place, they split up in teams. With their garbage bags and trash grabbers, the group swept our beach north and south. As illustrated by the chart, they also counted and documented all trash picked up. Sunny Isles Beach was not the only city to receive this huge cleaning effort. Other neighboring cities in Miami-Dade County are part of the Miami-Dade Coastal Clean- Up Event held yearly to keep all of the beaches clean.

Thank you from the City of Sunny Isles Beach and the Ocean Rescue Division plus a silent thank you from all the local birds and sea life which benefit from this event.
