The regulations require U.S. recreational boaters,
if your boat is 26 feet or more in length, to afﬁx one
or more USCG Trash Dumping Restrictions placards
to your boat. The placard warns against the discharge
of plastic and other forms of garbage within the
navigable waters of the United States and specify
discharge restrictions beyond the territorial sea.
(The territorial sea generally ends three nautical miles
from the seashore.) In addition, the placard must
contain the warning that a person who violates these
requirements is liable to civil ($25,000) and criminal
(imprisonment) penalties. The placard also must note
that State and local regulations may further restrict
the disposal of garbage.
Operators shall display one or more placards in a
prominent location and in sufﬁcient numbers so they
can be observed and read by crew and passengers.
These locations might include embarkation points,
food service areas, galleys, garbage handling spaces
and common deck spaces frequented by crew and
passengers. We recommend that these placards may
be purchased from local marinas, boat dealerships
and marine equipment suppliers. A special placard
is available for boats operating on the Great Lakes.
IMPORTANT: It is illegal to discharge waste
from your marine sanitary device (toilet) into
the water in most areas. It is your responsibility
to be aware of and adhere to all local laws
concerning waste discharge. Consult with the
Coast Guard, local marina or your dealer for
NOTE: Some states and localities have legal
limits on speed, noise and trailer speciﬁcations.
It is your responsibility to be aware of these
laws and limits and to insure that your boat
(and trailer) comply. Consult with your local
Marine Patrol or local Coast Guard ofﬁce.
