Cars & Boats

A car has a metal or plastic frame housing mechanical parts and interior cushions and linings.

Many local non-profits partner to receive a donation as part or your vehicle or boat donation. Inquire if the non-profit's that you support have this type of program.

Need to get rid of boat waste before donation or recyling? See these resources: Boating Clean & Green, Pumpout Nav App, SF Bay Clean Boating Map, Bilge Care & Preventing Oil Spills, Fishing Line, Abandoned Vessels, Oil, Chemical & Hazardous Waste Spills
