Dispose of unwanted marine equipment at Charleston-area Clean Marine April 8-10

Coastal recreational boaters, anglers and watermen will be able to dispose of unwanted equipment for free at a special three-day event in the greater Charleston area. The Clean Marine event is intended to help prevent boating and fishing equipment from becoming derelict or discarded into our coastal waterways and marshes.

Accepted items include motors, anchors, dock lines, crab traps, coolers, scrap material and accessories. Sorry, no oils, paints, solvents or cleaners will be accepted at this event. Large items, including watercraft and trailers, may be dropped off free of charge at Bees Ferry landfill on Friday April 8 and Saturday April 9.

Volunteers will be on hand to coordinate collection on April 8 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., April 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and April 10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the following locations:

The event is organized under a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration by a broad coalition of partners from both the private and public sectors including the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. If you are interested in assisting with this effort, please contact Suzi Durant with the S.C. Marine Association at (843) 889-9067or scmarineassn@gmail.com
