Place yard waste on your lawn for pickup
How does this action
help our Lagoon?
When yard waste, such as branches, limbs, palm fronds and other landscape trimmings are left on the street, sidewalks or driveways, heavy rains can carry loose debris into storm drains, either clogging the system or leading to the lagoon. Once in the lagoon, yard waste begins to decay and contribute to the accumulation of muck. Muck causes algae and phytoplankton blooms, which block sunlight to seagrasses, and consume oxygen needed for fish to survive.
