It is our policy to manage our obligations to the environment in a responsible manner and to manage Town Quay Marina to meet the needs of the berth holders in a way which has due regards for sustainable development both for our business and for the environment.
Sea toilets must only be used in the marina when pumped into a holding tank. Bilges should not be emptied out into the marina.
Disposal of oily waste
Facilities are provided in the waste compound for the disposal of waste oil, oily rags, oil filters and oily plastics.
Please enquire at the marina office. We can advise on the safe disposal of unwanted boat fridges.
A box is provided in the waste compound for dead batteries
Out of date flares are both dangerous and hazardous to the environment. They must not be disposed of in the general waste bins. As a service to our costumers and to promote good environmental practice we will dispose of old flares for you. Please enquire at the marina office.
If oil is spilt anywhere on Town Quay, a spill kit in the waste compound is provided for your use. Please alert the marina office to any oil spills immediately so that appropriate action can be taken.
General waste and recycling
The recycling facilities are located at the top of the marina gangway. The following types of waste can be recycled:
Paper (including newspapers and magazines)
All types of plastic packaging
All these materials are collected together in a single container and separated later at the recycling plant.
‘Of use to others’
A container is provided in the waste compound for any unwanted items that you feel may be of use to others.
