What are the UK requirements concerning delivery of ship-generated waste to waste reception facilities?

The master of a ship calling at a harbour or terminal must ensure that, before the ship leaves the harbour or terminal, all ship-generated waste is delivered to a waste reception facility.

However, the ship may proceed to the next port of call without delivering the waste if it follows from the information notified to the harbour authority that there is sufficient dedicated storage capacity for all the ship-generated waste that has been accumulated and will be accumulated during the intended voyage of the ship to the port of delivery.
