The Volusia County Coastal division is making it easier for beachgoers to turn their walks into something more meaningful. The county has installed a Fill A Bag station at Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park, 6656 S. Atlantic Ave., New Smyrna Beach.
The Fill A Bag station, founded in Key Biscayne, provides upcycled buckets for beachgoers to collect trash and debris during their visit. The station at Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park is maintained by Beach Relief, a local non-profit organization. A second station, maintained by Faneuil Inc., is scheduled to be installed at the Silver Beach vehicle access ramp in the next few weeks.
Fill A Bag fans are encouraged to tag Volusia County Beaches and include #FillABag on social media posts to spread the word about this grass roots initiative.
