10861022701?profile=RESIZE_710xBoca Save our Beaches teamed up with the Riviera Civic Association on the cleanup, with about 20 volunteers from the Riviera, Por La Mar and Sun & Surf neighborhoods collecting 150 pounds of trash in about 90 minutes at the park and along East Palmetto Park Road.


ABOVE: Nisakorn Nelson picks up small debris and pieces of trash. BELOW: William ‘Dune Man’ Sun leads the way as volunteers clear out an area near lifeguard station 4 that gets quite a bit of litter. Sun rides his bike most days to the beach and picks up trash that raccoons take into the dunes at night. He says the beach trash cans have no lids.
