Tips to keep Biscayne Bay clean
Minimize polluted surface water
Minimize when you fertilize
Don't be fuelish
Automotive leaks mean more gasoline, motor oil, metal parts, etc. in our stormwater runoffs.
Maintain your vehicle so leaks are promptly repaired.
Recycle motor oil. Call the Florida Department of Environmental Protection at 1-800-741-4DEP for the recycling location nearest you.
Never dump antifreeze or motor oil into storm drains, ditches or on the ground.
Be sure to conserve water and use biodegradable, low phosphate soap when washing your car.
Carpool and use public transportation whenever possible.
Put litter in its proper place
Garbage in our oceans can kill
When trash is discarded in an irresponsible manner, it can cause tremendous harm to the environment, especially marine ecosystems. Literally billions of pounds of trash are dumped into the world’s oceans every year.
Learn how you can lend a hand to protect our marine friends.
