Bilge Pad Exchange
The County of Orange, in partnership with the City of Dana Point and Dana Point businesses, operates a free Bilge Pad Exchange Program to preserve and enhance the quality of the marine environment at Dana Point Harbor. This exchange program provides conveniently located collection points for used bilge pads and distributes free replacement bilge pads.
Who Can Participate
Dana Point Harbor boaters can easily – and harmlessly – dispose of their used bilge pads and obtain free bilge pads for future use.
This program is for anybody at Dana Point Harbor who uses or diposes bilge pads.
