Free tickets! Access to the clean ocean to host the shrink wrap collection event at the Mystic Aquarium on Saturday, May 21.
We urge all boaters to dispose of their shrink wrap responsibly!
CONNECTICUT, USA, May 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — You’ve protected your boat – now protect the environment! Clean Ocean Access (COA) urges all boaters to dispose of shrink wrap responsibly.
Join us at Mystic Aquarium’s Milne Center for a day-long collection event on Saturday, May 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public. Drop your shrink wrap and feel the satisfaction of knowing you did the right thing.
Every spring, millions of pounds of shrink wrap used to winterize and protect boats end up in landfills and contribute marine debris to the oceans. Together we can recycle shrink wrap domestically into new products for the marine and sailing industry.
Please prepare your shrink wrap for recycling ensuring all contaminants are removed before depositing.
– Remove all strapping, vents, zippers and other non-shrink packing materials
– Make sure the shrink wrap is clean and dry
– Fold shrink wrap in 4-5 foot width
– Roll the shrink wrap into a tight bundle and tie off using a shrink wrap strip
We appreciate the support of our recycling partners and Mystic Aquarium for sharing their facilities and promoting the program.
Location: Mystic Aquarium Milne Center for Ocean Science and Conservation, 55 Coogan Blvd, Mystic, CT 06355
All boaters or anyone interested in learning more are welcome. Contact our Shrink Film Recycling Program Manager, Egidia Vergano, at [email protected] with any questions.
