FACILITIES FOR THE COLLECTION OF GARBAGE FROM SHIPS IN SINGAPORE


1 Port Marine Circular No 2 of 2000 dated 15 Jan 2000 is hereby cancelled. This is a
reproduction of the circular with amendments.


2 Currently the facilities for the collection of garbage from ships in Singapore are as follows:



For Ships at the Anchorages

       Ship’s normal galley refuse, generated while in port, are collected by the Maritime and
       Port Authority of Singapore’s (MPA) appointed contractor. Ships wishing to use this
       service should have the galley refuse properly bagged in plastic garbage bags and have
       them ready for transfer into the garbage collection craft that would be calling at the
       anchored vessels.


       For Ships at Terminals (e.g. Cargo Terminals, Shipyards, Private Wharves)

       Ships having garbage for disposal are to make their own arrangements, through their
       agent, with the terminals. Oil terminals, for practical and safety reasons, do not provide
       garbage collection services at their terminals. In such circumstances, the ship may wish
       to arrange for a special garbage collection service at the anchorage.
      Special Garbage Collection Services

      Apart from ships at oil terminals, which do not provide garbage collection services, ships
      having large quantities of garbage (in excess of the normal garbage generated daily)
      may wish to make special arrangements for garbage disposal, at the fees indicated in
      Annex A. The special garbage collection services provided will start from 0830 hrs and
      be completed by 1700 hrs daily.


3 With immediate effect, arrangement for the Special Garbage Collection Services should be
made directly with MPA, at the following contact numbers:
