Marine Debris

The Town of Hempstead Conservation & Waterways Department removes nearly 700 tons of debris a year from our waterways. The department strives to keep our waterways clean and our channels free from Navigational Hazards. We do this with our Marine Debris Removal Program. This program assists residents with the removal of unwanted floating docks and ramps from their homes for a small fee as well as from local bays.

If you would like to report debris on the marsh or floating in the bay please contact the TOH Bay Constables at (516) 897-4100 to make a Complaint Report.

If you have a floating dock at your home and would like to remove it using our program please contact our maintenance yard at (516) 379-2828 to set up an inspection.
