The Port of Oxelösund receives sorted waste from vessels to the extent that regional waste reception facilities will accept it. This also includes recycling, recovery and energy recovery.

A reception charge is added to the port fee and is charged at a flat rate for all vessels.
Notification must take place at least 24 hours before collection and must include, among other things, details of quantity, product and dimension and type of connection. Contaminated water (sludge and sewage) is collected by a sludge collection vehicle. Black and grey water (sewage) is also collected at berth no. 3. Cloths contaminated by oil, etc. and other hazardous waste must be packed and labelled in accordance with the instructions in “MARPOL 73/78 Annex III”.

Delivery of oil residues and waste from a vessel’s engine room
Oil residues and waste that occur normally in a vessel’s engine room may be left free of charge at the Port of Oxelösund on the following conditions: (“Normally” means what can be held in the keel under the machine room, sludge and bilge water tanks).
The waste must originate from a vessel that is moored in the Port of Oxelösund and must not have a flash point below 60°C or other components classified as “hazardous goods”.
An order for collection must be submitted at least 24 hours before delivery, to the port’s traffic department, on tel. +46 (0)155-25 81 50 on weekdays (excl. public holidays) between 08:00–12:00 and 13:00–16:00. The order must include details of quantity, type of waste, components in waste, how it is intended to deliver the waste and, if the waste can be pumped, what kind of connection is required. There should ideally be an international connection with an outlet on deck. If delivery does not take place at the agreed time, the additional cost incurred is charged.
If the vessel is to deliver the waste using its own pump, this must take place at a speed of no less than 5 m³ per hour. If this is not possible, the additional cost is charged. There must be a person on board the vessel with responsibility for delivery, who receives and connects the hose to the vessel, monitors the pumping process and generally assists the recipient.
If collection takes place using a sludge collection vehicle, the driver must keep the vehicle and hose under constant supervision during the work process. The driver of the vehicle is responsible for oil spillages from the vehicle.
If waste is delivered in barrels, the vessel must arrange for these to be placed in the location designated by the port authority. Barrels must be intact and sealed, and must also be clearly, permanently marked when delivered. Costs of cleaning spillages caused by leaking barrels and the costs of special handling because of an obvious risk of leakage are charged to the vessel. A written declaration of the content of the waste must be delivered to the recipient upon request. The above information is handed to the vehicle’s driver upon collection.
