‘Nothing overboard’ recycle campaign launch

‘Nothing overboard’ recycle campaign launch

By Staff Writer - July 20, 2016

A new programme aimed at reducing pollution at sea has been launched as a combined effort of a French NGO, Clean Holidays, the RAMOGE trilateral commission, and the port authority in Monaco.

“I sail, I sort” was inaugurated on Tuesday, July 19, by the Port of Fontvielle in cooperation with the Department of Infrastructure and Environment. One of the campaign’s slogans is ‘Nothing overboard, all my waste to the port.’ Throughout the summer season leisure sailors can collect sacks for recyclable rubbish from the Port Captain and will have access, free of charge, to bags for non-recyclable items.

There has been marked improvement in the amount of waste recycled at ports in France since the measures were introduced, and during 2015 a total of 111,000 boat captains were involved.  SOURCE: Monaco Government Press Office
