Recycling: Recycling bins are placed along the quay for glass and metal whilst plastic can be placed in the recycling bins to the rear of the town hall.
General Refuse: General refuse should be placed in one of the various grey wheelie bins along the front of the main building. If you have more than a small quantity please come and see us in the Harbour Office.
International Catering Waste: If you arrive in St Mary’s Harbour from outside the UK, the general waste onboard your vessel is classed as International Catering Waste (ICW) and needs to be disposed of separately to that from a vessel travelling within the UK. Harbour Staff should be informed and waste should be brought to the Harbour Office for the necessary procedures to be implemented.
Sewage: We have no pump out facilities in St Mary’s Harbour and request that our shore facilities or holding tanks are used.
