Becoming a Clean Marina

One way marinas can help Lake Erie water is by becoming a ‘Clean Marina’. Boat owners can help keep the environment clean by adopting a series of best management practices developed through the Ohio Clean Marinas Program. To become a ‘Clean Marina’ Here are some of the Clean Marina requirements: 1: Keep It Clean When Preparing Boats for Summer Boating Fun.2: Recycled Marine Shrink Wrap Makes Roadways Safer. The Ohio Clean Marinas Program and its partners encourage boaters, marina operators, and greenhouse facility operators to recycle their plastic shrink wrap this season by taking it to a collection site. 3: Marinas Support Growing Effort to Recycle Boat Shrink Wrap. Thanks to the innovative Shrink-Wrap recycling program more than one million pounds of plastic marine shrink wrap have been recycled and made into highway guardrail blocks that help make roadways safer and reduce landfill content.4. Adopt Best Management Practices for managing water at the marina. Congratulations to all Ohio’s Clean Marina’s listed here http://ohioseagrant.osu.edu/cleanmarinas/marinas/
