Vero Goes Zero
After teaming up with Indian River County and the City of Vero Beach to pilot this novel opportunity back in 2019, Beach Baskets have become the brand-new best friend for anyone visiting Florida’s beaches. You can find these free baskets at public beach access points across Florida encouraging beachgoers to pick up debris while they visit the beach. These baskets have shown to be a cost-effective tool for engaging both residents and area visitors as stewards of the environment. Checkout our interactive map of basket locations below.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Coastal Connections, Inc partners with Indian River County and the Oceanfront Business Association to provide special recycling opportunities for members of our community.
WRAP Recycling is a program extension to a Statewide initiative offered by Indian River County SWDD. Our team provides education and a free removal service for small businesses who collect soft plastic films or wrapping typically found around packaged goods. WRAP materials can include bubble wrap, plastic bags, cling wrap, and soft plastic packaging. These materials are scheduled for pickup and are weighted and evaluated before being taken to a local convenience center by a CCinc team member for bundling and recycling.
