Waste management

The Atlantic Port of La Rochelle has implemented a policy for managing waste from ships, promoting their sorting, recycling and recovery. The objective is to reduce waste discharges from vessels by improving the availability and use of waste reception facilities in the port, thereby improving the protection of marine environment.

Depending on the amount and type of waste products, vessels calling must deposit their waste sorted at points on the docks called "Points MARPOL". See eligibility requirements or use the waste service providers approved by the Port (ask to your agent). Management of ship-generated waste and cargo residues from ships on stopover is summarised in the Information for ship's Masters

Note: For vessels located in the Shipbuilding and Repair Centre, refer to the section.
