Only 1/3rd of the ships unload their waste in the Port of Rotterdam, what happens to the other 2/3rd’s?
Rotterdam one of the worlds largest ports in the world, is taking its waste management very seriously. This is good news as ships can be compared to small towns, producing varying types of waste continuously. Inspectors in the Port of Rotterdam check the garbage logs to see whether waste is actually being collected and segregated or dumped into the oceans. Unfortunately it still happens more than you think.
However there is a positive note, we at Delitek see that there are many ship owners and managers that take their waste management on board very seriously and contribute to cleaner oceans daily.
