MARINE SHRINK WRAP RECYCLING

THE PROBLEM
Every year, hundreds of tons of shrink wrap are thrown away by boat owners and marinas. This plastic, made from polyethylene, does not biodegrade. It sits in landfills indefinitely, taking up space and polluting the environment.
This is not a sustainable system.

OPTIONS AVAILABLE

Our partner Clean Ocean Access has identified four main options for boat owners to protect their boats:

  • Single-use shrink wrap (recyclable)

  • Custom covers (sometimes recyclable)

  • Re-used shrink wrap (recyclable)

  • Store-bought covers (not recyclable)

Of these, re-used shrink wrap is the most eco-friendly.

OUR SOLUTION

Recycle! Seaside Sustainability has partnered with Clean Ocean Access to develop a cost effective shrink wrap recycling
program for Cape Ann and the North Shore. The program offers marinas and boat owners a low cost and environmentally friendly way to dispose of their boat wrap...
