Disposing of waste responsibly is the duty of all Harbour users. Allowing waste products including garbage or oily wastes to enter the harbour environment is a criminal offence. The Langstone Harbour Board has made it easy for everyone to dispose of their waste appropriately by installing the following facilities.
When out on a boat or having a shore side picnic it is surprising how much garbage you can produce. Prevent these items from entering the marine environment and damaging wildlife by depositing them in the general waste bins at the harbour office. Alternatively, you can deposit your garbage at facilities provided at your club or marina.
As well as facilities for the disposal of garbage, recycling facilities are available in Langstone Harbour. At the harbour office, it is now possible to recycle paper, cardboard, tins and some plastics in the orange mixed recyclables bin. We also have a separate red bin in which you can recycle glass.
When carrying out engine maintenance, quantities of waste oil and oily rags often require disposal. At the harbour office separate containers for the disposal of waste oil, oil filters and oily rags are now available (we are currently unable to dispose of empty oil cans). Please note that this facility is for boat-generated waste only.
Waste collected in the holding tanks of sea toilets (’black water’) can be disposed of appropriately at the pump out facility at Southsea Marina, which is located in the south west of Langstone Harbour.
