Are Beer Cans Allowed on Texas' Rivers when Floating

can ban texas river

Over the years, some rivers/towns have issued a "can ban" while floating their river. Some have kept the can ban and some have done away with it. If you ever hear the term "can ban" this means no cans or one time use containers allowed on the river. Reason behind this ban is to limit the trash build up and heavy intoxication while floating the river. As of summer 2023, here are what some rivers have in place for the "can ban".

SAN MARCOS RIVER

 

Yes, cans are allowed on the San MARCSO RIVER

 

As of summer 2024 cans are allowed on the San Marcos river while you float the river but glass and styrofoam are not allowed. This helps protect the river and the ecosystem. The San Marcos river is quite precious and fragile so please leave no trace.

 

If y'all join a float trip with Frontera Tours , we provide onion mesh bags to everyone for trash. It's a great way to float the river and keep your trash on board. At the end we'll have trash cans for everyone.

Examples of disposable containers are one time plastic water bottles, Ziploc plastic baggies, plastic forks, spoons, knives, paper cups, plastic cups, styrofoam cups and containers, all glass items, beverage cans, one time use mini kegs, food wrappers and packaging, plastic wrap, plastic trash bags, aluminum foil, wine boxes, juice boxes, paper plates, paper towels, napkins, etc.
