Residents can soon dispose of their derelict vessels in a way that protects the environment this summer.
From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 4-6, people can turn in the vessels to 900 Landfill Road in Port Lavaca and 448 Harbor Road in Seadrift.
The vessels must be clear of waste and debris and under 26 feet long. Longer boats may be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Calhoun County partnered with the Texas General Land Office and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to accept the vessels and dispose of them at no cost to residents.
“This project always provides a great outcome as we collect a lot of debris that generates an untold cost from lost recreation opportunities and potential storm hazards,” Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush wrote in a news release.
