The City, in partnership with the Surfrider Foundation will hold a Dune Restoration event during the 2016 Family Service Day. The dune restoration will involve the removal of non-native invasive vegetation. Volunteers can earn Community Service Hours, bond with their community, and have some fun. This volunteering opportunity is one of many that will be held during Family Service Day.  

    We will also be given away free trees and balcony plants to Miami Beach residents (proof of residency is required). Come pick up yours before they're all gone!

    Volunteers will receive lunch from burger hot spot Shake Shack, a free T-shirt and a free reusable water bottle courtesy of Coca-Cola. There will be giveaways with prizes for all ages.  Students will receive documentation of their participation for community service hours. In order to raise awareness about the issue of hunger, promote solutions to the underlying causes and show support to our neighbors in need, volunteers are asked to bring one or more non-perishable canned goods. Proceeds from our food drive will be distributed to the community‚Äôs most at-risk individuals and families.

    Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients are considered to be "household hazardous waste". These products contain hazardous ingredients that require special care when disposed of in order to protect human health and the quality of environment.
    The City has organized a free household hazardous waste collection event for Miami Beach residents. Drop off your household chemicals and hazardous waste, including paints, cleaners, motor oil, propane, pool chemicals, batteries, electronics, and inkjet, toner, and laser printer cartridges for proper disposal. Additionally, a paper shredding company will have locked containers on-site to accept sensitive documents for certified destruction and recycling.
