This Waste Management Plan has been produced by the New Mangalore Port in response to the requirements set out in the MARPOL Regulations Annex I-V (Port Waste Reception Facilities).
The strict requirements of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78) for ships operating in the harbour waters are being followed.
The implementation of the New Mangalore Port Waste Management Plan is a further step forward in the control and management of waste from ships in order to ensure a cleaner environment at sea and in port. The overall aim of this Waste Management Plan is to assist in the reduction of the quantity of waste entering the seas.
The Plan is intended for use by all vessels, regardless of size, which use those berths operated by the New Mangalore Port, shipping agents and those in a position to assist in the arrangement of waste disposal from ships. It is also intended to assist Licensed Waste Contractors operating within the limit of the port and employed to remove waste from vessels and from shore.
