Recycle boat wrap for free
Dakota County residents can recycle boat wrap for free through May 31 at Lighthouse Motorsports and Marine in Rosemount. The type of plastic used to wrap boats requires special handling and should not be placed with regular recycling.

Call Lighthouse Motorsports and Marine at 651-322-4420 before dropping off boat wrap. Remove all straps, cords, rocks and gravel.
