FACT:

Hazardous waste pose a threat to the environment if they are improperly disposed into the water or air, or onto the ground. Typical hazardous wastes generated by boaters include solvent paint waste, used batteries, mercury containing bilge pump switches, used oil, old gasoline and out of date flares.

GOAL:

Dispose of hazardous waste properly.

 ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE:

  • Place ignitable paint waste and old gasoline in closed containers so the waste does not escape into the air or create a fire hazard.

  • Used oil should be put into a closed container that will not fill with rain and overflow into the water or onto the ground. Many service stations and automotive repair shops will provide free disposal of up to five gallons. For more information call 1-800-741-4337, based on zip code, a list of locations for free oil disposal is provided.

  • Trade in a used battery for a possible credit toward a replacement battery.

  • Out of date flares that have not been exposed to water or have other damage may be kept on the boat as long as the Coast Guard required number of in date flares are also onboard.

  • When possible, use paints that are not solvent based. Buy bilge pump switches that do not contain mercury.
