VTIP Participating Agencies


What should you do with your unwanted vessel?

If you have a recreational boat that you no longer want, the free, easy and safe Vessel Turn-In Program may be the solution. Contact a local public agency shown below for more information and to apply for the VTIP. It is also possible to take an unwanted vessel to a landfill site for disposal. Contact your local transfer station or landfill agency for further information regarding acceptance, costs, and hazardous waste restrictions. If you are required to remove hazardous materials before disposing the vessel, check the resources cited in this VTIP brochure for locations to properly dispose of these materials and/or fluids.

Never abandon or sink a vessel to dispose of it. Not only does it create public, navigational, environmental and safety hazards on our state’s waterways, but it is illegal with fines of $1,000 to $3,000, plus the costs of removal and disposal! This helpful and proactive program is administered by California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW), and grants are awarded annually to qualified local public agencies statewide. Commercial vessels are not covered under this program.
