Site with the most trash collected was from the Miami Wreck & Reef dive Sept 04, 2011.  


  • Only trash taken during FIU SCUBA Cat Club organized dives will be counted towards the contest. NO PREVIOUSLY COLLECTED TRASH WILL BE ALLOWED.
  • Individual club members or teams of club members (up to four) may be formed to compete in the trash reef clean up competition.
  • To qualify for prizes, participants must be registered FIU SCUBA Cat Club members and show proper identification.
  • Safety: Each participant is responsible for their own gear, unless the club receives equipment donations or donations for equipment to provide for free to our participants at each dive event. We strongly encouraged participants to carry protective gloves to handle the trash.
  •  Prizes will be awarded for the most trash collected. The club will keep record of the weight amount of trash collected by each member during the semester on our website. Contest will end at the conclusion of every academic semester [Summer (May 1-Aug 19), Fall (Aug 20-Dec 23), & Spring (Jan 1-May1)], an FIU SCUBA Cat Club Officer will add up the trash weight and announce the winner who collected the most trash in terms of weight.
  • Trash entries must be documented with a photograph and the club member who collected it. In the same fashion all trash entries must be weighted with a scale. An FIU SCUBA Cat Club Officer must validate entries.
  •  In the event of a tie, the winning team will be determined by the earliest recording of its trash collection.
  • Anyone found violating the competition rules will be disqualified from receiving any prizes.
