It is illegal to dump garbage, plastics, debris, or filthy or smelly objects or substances into any Arizona waters or shorelines. Many forms of litter can kill birds, fish, and other aquatic wildlife.
You must store trash in a container while on board and place it in a proper receptacle after returning to shore.
If boating on federally controlled waters and your vessel is 26 feet or longer, you must display a Garbage Disposal Placard that is at least 4 x 9 inches and notifies passengers and crew about discharge restrictions.
