MIAMI (WSVN) - Volunteers came together across Miami-Dade County to pick up trash from the Biscayne Bay shoreline.

The 40th annual Baynanza took place Saturday beginning at around 9 a.m. Volunteers met at several different locations to remove trash in an effort to improve the environment. 

Clean-ups were held throughout the county, including along the Julia Tuttle Causeway, at the Pelican Harbor Seabird Station, the Surfside Community Center and Morningside Park. 

“Today, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel did their part with Baynanza Earth Day,” said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Ray Jadallah. “In addition to that, family members, along with Miami-Dade firefighters, picked up over 30 pounds of trash over the last several hours at the Oleta State Park.”

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava joined volunteers at the Morningside Park clean-up.
