The Texas Boating Disposal Program Ends on Feb. 9th!
The Texas General Land Office and Galveston County are holding a vessel disposal program. If your jetski or small boat is non-operational, you may dispose it for free. There are some rules regarding this program:
- Your boat or jetski must be inspected prior to the event. Inspections can be done at local boating repair shops that are certified by the Texas General Land Office.
- Your boat or jetski must be shorter than 26ft in length. Most personal watercraft will pass this test.
- The owner must transport the boat or jetski to the program.
- You must call before February 9th to reserve a spot.
Benefits to the Galveston Environment
Many aging boats and jetskis rust and leak fuel or other chemicals into the bay or streams. The cost of PWC disposal can be relatively high, but Galveston county sees the benefit to the environment. This program benefits the local ecology, improves fishing and swimming for Galveston residents, and even increases real estate value due to the cleaner waters. Older PWC engines have a higher failure rate and are responsible for a greater percentage of accidents. It is imperative that we take care of our environment and ourselves by properly disposing of older boats and jetskis.
Please call (409) 766-4509 to reserve a spot.
