Waste Handling

The Port of Helsinki accepts oily waste from engine room, black/grey water and solid waste from the ships and arranges the waste management with a waste management company. These are included in the waste management fee.

Each of the Port of Helsinki’s quays is equipped to allow for direct discharge of waste water into the sewer network, from where it is transported directly to HSY for processing. A separate charge is not levied for discharging waste waters. Also, a ship will get a 20% discount on solid and oily waste charges if waste water is also discharged at the harbour.

For additional charge, a ship can discharge hazardous waste, scrap metal, electrical and electronic waste as well as incinerator ash and exhaust gas-cleaning system residues to the Port of Helsinki.

The ship sends a duly completed ship-generated waste notification to the Port of Helsinki on time. If a vessel has an exemption from mandatory delivery of ship-generated waste from maritime authorities the Port of Helsinki must be informed.
