Marco Island Beach Clean Up

The next monthly City of Marco Island Beach Advisory Committee Beach Clean Up is scheduled for Sunday, November 21st at 8 AM at the South Beach beach access. The business partners for this clean up are the Marco Island YMCA and M & I Bank. All public are encouraged and welcome to volunteer and to participate. If a student or group needs to accrue community volunteer hours, this is a great way to earn a few hours.

The City of Marco Island’s Beach Advisory Committee (BAC) meets monthly on the third Thursday at 9 AM at City Hall, 50 Bald Eagle Drive. Public attendance and comments are welcome. The BAC would like to remind all beach goers to help keep our beach beautiful by remembering the following easy steps:

Leave Only Your Footprints – All trash, including cigarettes and fishing line should be disposed of in proper containers. Glass containers or bottles are prohibited on the beach.

No Live Shelling – Only shells that do not contain a live organism should be taken from the beach; if unsure, leave the shell.

Share the Beach with Our Wildlife – Do not feed or disturb wildlife; avoid nesting and resting birds and sea turtles. Watch and enjoy from a respectful distance.

No Dogs or Pets Allowed on the Beach – Only guide dogs accompanying visually/hearing impaired persons are permissible on the Marco Island beach.

All Wheeled Vehicles Prohibited – Only stroller, wheelchairs and licensed Beach Vendor vehicles are permissible.
