1,000 Eyes on the Water Rapid Response team - COMPOST UPDATE!

Thank you again for joining Miami Waterkeeper's 1,000 Eyes on the Water Rapid Response team. Just today, we've received reports of dozens of clean-ups and hundreds of decaying fish removed from Biscayne Bay. Together - we are making a difference! Thank you for your dedication! 

Here's the latest -- we are currently working with Fertile Earth Worm Farm and the City of Miami to coordinate composting of decaying fish from this week's fish kill in Biscayne Bay. 

When dropping off fish for composting:

  • Empty the contents of your trash bag into the designated compost bin
  • Dispose of your trash bag in a nearby trash can
  • Compost bins are for fish and organic debris ONLY

The Farm handles organic matter ONLY and having plastic garbage bags in the compost bins will cause complications when processing.

Drop off locations:

Morningside Park, 750 NE 55th Terrace, Miami, FL 33137, bins located by the boat ramp. 

 

Albert Pallot Park, NE 6th Ave, Miami, 33137, bins located by the water. 

 

Margaret Pace Park, 1745 N Bayshore Dr, Miami, 33132, bins located along the sidewalk. 

 

As you clean up, please note that we do not recommend swimming in the water at this time

And, please spread the word - we need as many hands on deck as possible to help with this cleanup effort. 

Thank you for your commitment to helping our beloved Biscayne Bay.

In solidarity,

Miami Waterkeeper
