The Porto della Maremma is an example of an eco-sustainable infrastructure and is a pioneer in raising awareness of the need to protect the environment and its natural resources. The quest for sustainability is a 360-degree objective with regard to the port’s economic and financial management, employment, related activities, and development that is compatible with protecting the environment and the landscape.

Urban waste management
The Port provides special collection bins for separating your waste:

- organic material
- undifferentiated waste
Managing waste from boats
It is not allowed to discharge bilge water, liquid waste, or hydrocarbons inside the port basin.
It is also forbidden to wash cars on the quay or to wash boats with polluting chemicals and detergents.
In the port area an ecological zone has been set up where used oil, batteries, cloths and rags contaminated by oils or hydrocarbons, and other special waste can be disposed of.
Water and Energy: two indispensable resources
Water and the energy for lighting are collective resources that need to be used sensibly.
The Porto della Maremma request that you limit the time spent showering and washing boats, and to keep your boat’s lights turned off at night.
