Garbage from international ships is classified as “special waste” under the PEI Waste Resource Management Regulations (under the PEI Environmental Protection Act). Transfer of garbage from international ships at the Charlottetown Marine Terminal must be pre arranged with the Charlottetown Harbour Authority Inc. and will only be considered if all arrangements and permits are prepared by the vessel owner, captain or agent. A copy of the permit must be supplied to Charlottetown Harbour Authority Inc. before the transfer of any waist.

A permit from the province ($25) is required for disposal of this waste, and the only possible disposal option is incineration at a cost per tonne. Furthermore, the incineration of international garbage requires an inspection from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) under the Federal Health of Animals Act. The province may issue a permit within four hours of a request, if the tonnage and basic garbage components are presented to them ahead of time. Once the permit is issued, the province automatically contacts CFIA for an inspection.
