UK Pump Out Locations


Canal & River Trust Pump out Location Map

The Canal & River Trust have developed an interactive map to help boat users locate facilities along inland waterways, including pump out stations, water points and recycling points.

The disposal of sewage from boats on the inland waterways is prohibited by law and the navigation authorities require that sea toilets are sealed.

The Green Blue’s Environmental Facilities Map (see below) contains details of locations offering compost toilet disposal. Bagging and binning the contents has not been allowed in CRT facilities since December 2021 and alternate methods of disposal should be found.


The Green Blue’s Environmental Facilities Map

This online map indicates organisations (who have registered to be on the map) which provide environmental facilities such as pump out, black water/Elsen disposal, recycling, freshwater refill points, hazardous waste disposal and filtered/bunded boat washdown.

For more information on responsible disposal of waste from your boat, please see The Green Blue’s guidance on blackwater.
