Dry Waste Management

As a part of the system for ship-generated garbage, processing equipment such as compactors, baling presses, shredders and crushers can be installed on board to optimize storage space and make garbage easier to store and to transfer to port reception facilities.

Garbage collection points with receptacles should be located in appropriate spaces throughout the ship and the garbage should be stored in a manner, which avoids health, safety and environmental hazards. Waste fractions to be recycled at port reception facilities should be segregated prior to the onboard processing.

Environmental awareness of crew with respect to minimizing generation and separating of the waste is important in order to succeed in fulfilling the purpose of a waste management system.
