German Newspaper Profiles Activities to Control Illegal Waste Trafficking at Bremen Port

Filed under: Europe, seaports — Tags: — inece @ 1:17 pm

A German Newspaper, Nordsee-Zeitung Bremerhaven, developed an article on activities at Bremen port under INECE’s Seaport Environmental Security Network’s International Hazardous Waste at Seaports Inspection Month, which took place during June 2010. The article, which is available in German only, describes the role of Bremen’s police in detecting and deterring illegal waste shipments.

An excerpt of the article is below and the full article, Auf der Jagd nach den Müllschiebern, is available on the website of Nordsee-Zeitung Bremerhaven.

Überseehäfen. Schaukelnd und schnaufend kommt der Containertruck am Zolltor zum Stehen. „Moin, Polizeikontrolle.“ Hans-Jürgen Gordner blickt etwas skeptisch von seinem „Bock“ herunter. Nach dem weiten Weg von Schkopau in Sachsen-Anhalt stellt sich ihm kurz vor dem Ziel – dem Containerterminal Bremerhaven – die Polizei in den Weg.
