Annual waterway cleanup held in South Florida

More than 2,000 volunteers came out last weekend for the Marine Industries Association of South Florida's 35th annual waterway cleanup of Broward County’s waterways, rivers and canals.

The trade group said 20 tons of trash were removed from 24 sites on Saturday.

Scout troops accounted for more than 200 of the volunteers this year, which was the largest scout presence to date for the annual event. Sites such as Dania Beach and John Lloyd State Park had a large influx of students this year.

MIASF marketing director Lacie Randall presented the Group Year-Round Environmental Stewardship Award to the Broward Sea Cadets for their continuing efforts to clean up waterways annually. New River Middle School teacher Barbara Rapoza accepted the award for Year-Round Environmental Stewardship Award as an individual.
