Collecting waste

Do you want to drop off garbage or household waste? There are several options for that within the North Sea Port ports.

A ship’s master or his agent must submit all information regarding shipping waste to North Sea Port by using the ENIGMA electronic port information system (this is mandatory). All registrations, obligations and locations where certain types of waste can be handed in are included in the information system.
