The South Florida Chapter has been pushing for several years to clean up the mass amounts of litter from South Miami Beach. As a result of their efforts the city is undergoing a major litter education campaign and has pledged to: 1. Train code enforcement officers to patrol the beach and issue littering citations. 2. Work with the County to increase the amount of trash pickups and to provide a trash transfer station in the South Beach area to allow for increased pickup. 3. Start a recycling program for beach goers to take advantage of. 4. Institute a cigarette butt ashtray program.
