The Marine Industries Association of South Florida is organizing its 34th annual Waterway Cleanup, a one-day event that attracts more than 2,000 volunteers and 100 boats in South Florida to clean up the waterways in Broward County.

This year's event is set for March 5 and includes 24 cleanup sites in the county.

Volunteers are needed to work along the shorelines and waterfront, as well as on the water in boats. Students are especially encouraged to participate and can earn community service hours.

Last year, volunteers collected 15 tons of trash. More than 1,800 volunteers cleaned about 300 miles of waterways.
