[ARCHIVED] Biodegradable Bags Now Available at All Beach Access Points

Bio beach bags

Pack it in Pack it Out, Trash Your Trash and Leave No Trace. Hikers, campers and those who love the outdoors understand these basic principles and the City of Boca Raton is now helping residents and visitors do their part by providing new biodegradable bags at all beach access points. The bags are located in bag dispensers with tinted Plexiglas doors which help curtail UV ray degradation.

For those committed to outdoor ethics by keeping our beaches and waterways clean, there are many ways to get involved. Gumbo Limbo Nature Center offers environmental camps and regularly scheduled programs for seining the lagoon. Local community and nonprofit groups organize beach clean ups throughout the year and have provided plastic buckets at certain locations for additional opportunities to keep the beaches clean.

For pet owners who frequent Dog Beach at Spanish River Park, ongoing efforts to pick up after your pets has helped make the beach a favorite weekend playground for pups. Thanks for keeping our beaches clean Boca Raton!
