Cape Cod Boat Owners – Take Advantage of the Boat Shrink Wrap Recycling Program for 2023

This spring, boaters from across Cape Cod can choose from six locations to recycle the plastic wrap that protects their boat in the off-season from April 1 to June 30.

Recyling Locations: The six locations are the transfer stations located in Bourne, Dennis, Chatham, Eastham, Falmouth, and Wellfleet.

Fees and Requirements: There is no fee or sticker required for residents to drop off boat shrink wrap, but the wrap must be properly prepared for recycling or it will not be accepted.

Hours/ Location Info: Collection locations, hours, and program information can be found at  

Why Recycle Your Shrink Wrap? The Cape Cod shrink wrap recycling program reduces the amount of plastic entering our waste stream and saves valuable and limited space for non-recyclable materials. It is a partnership between Barnstable County’s Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Sea Grant, AmeriCorps Cape Cod, and the towns of Bourne, Dennis, Chatham, Eastham, Falmouth and Wellfleet.
