Boating: Oil and Gas in Our Waterways

We all enjoy boating in our waterways, and each of us have a chance to keep those waterways clean and healthy. If you would like to help the environment, it’s as simple as choosing a “clean” marina. A clean marina adopts environmentally friendly practices

Clean marinasuch as educating boaters about clean refueling, and they may also have well-lit bathrooms, shore-side laundry facilities, more grassy areas, convenient pump-out stations, plenty of trash cans and recycling bins and many other amenities that not only help keep the waterway clean, but they make your time at the marina more pleasant. For example, here’s a link to find Florida’s clean marinas.

FYI – By law, any oil or fuel spill that leaves a sheen on the water must be reported to the U.S. Coast Guard National Response Center by calling 1-800-424-8802. Many states require you to contact them as well in case of a spill, so make sure you know what agency to contact in your state.

Once the testing and sample runs are completed, we don’t toss that material away, we regrind it for reprocessing into other extrusion products.
