Keep Hollywood Beautiful
The Department of Public Works manages several programs designed to Keep Hollywood Beautiful.  Volunteer participation is essential to the success of these efforts and we welcome participation through the Volunteer Hollywood Program. Keep Hollywood Beautiful is the City’s new program which includes Beach Sweeps,  Cash for Trash and a new Adopt-A-Street campaign.  This program is intended to keep our beach, neighborhoods and streets clean and litter free.  

Adopt-a-Street
The Adopt A Street program is a continuation of Broward County’s program that the City of Hollywood is now managing.  We welcome groups, businesses and individuals to adopt roadways in their neighborhoods and perform four cleanups per year. The group name will be posted on signs placed at the beginning and end of their roadway adoption location.  For more information please call 954.967.4526.  To participate, please complete the application form and return to lunderwood@hollywoodfl.org.

Beach Sweeps
Beach Sweeps are conducted on the second Saturday of every month from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.  Volunteers meet at Charnow Park, which is located at Garfield Street and A1A, and collect litter and cigarette butts from the beach.  Please complete the registration form and bring it with you.

Guidelines for Beach Sweep participants

Minimum age to volunteer is eight, and an adult must accompany minors.

Volunteers must wear proper cleanup attire.  T-shirt and shorts are acceptable. All volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes -- No flip-flops. Volunteers wearing flip-flops will not be allowed to participate. It is recommended that volunteers wear a hat and sunscreen and bring their own water. It is also a good idea to bring a snack. 

Safety and Equipment:
Keep Hollywood Beautiful will provide trash bags and gloves. Staff will conduct a short safety meeting and provide cleanup instructions prior to the cleanup on the day of the event. 

Parking:
Volunteers should park and meet at Charnow Park, 300 Connecticut Street. Carpooling is highly recommended. Not only is it good for the environment, but parking on the beach is limited. We cannot guarantee free parking for all volunteers. Parking passes will be issued at the Registration Table which you must place on your car dashboard.

Marine Debris:
Marine debris is often the result of deliberate or accidental actions by people on land or at sea. For example, uncovered trash bins, litter, debris left in streets and on beaches, and items thrown overboard can all become marine debris. Items can travel far before landing on shorelines or settling in the ocean. Marine debris can come from anywhere-it can be carried by rivers, streams, and other waterways into the ocean.

Cash for Trash
The Cash For Trash program has been brought back to encourage neighborhood and civic associations to organize litter collection events and earn $6 per bag of trash collected.  The Department of Community and Economic Development is working with associations to organize and schedule cleanup events on the 2nd Saturday of each month.  Please read the Cash For Trash Booklet for additional information about the program or to complete an application.  For more information please call 954.921.3271.
