In a marine or offshore environment, maintaining a safe and clean operation is a key factor in the daily lives of both guests and crew. Responsible marine waste management is not only vital to the prevention of pollution and keeping in compliance with federal discharge laws, it can also save vessel and fleet owners money and valuable onboard space.
The Challenges of Marine Waste Disposal
Waste types and amounts can differ, depending on the length of the voyage and the number of crew and passengers, but waste onboard is sure to include plastic bags, aluminum cans, and a wide range of discarded items that cannot be released into the ocean. The common issue is that space is restricted and uncompressed waste can quickly become a challenge to handle. You need a comprehensive waste management plan that includes garbage minimization, recycling separation, and trash compactors to help eliminate marine debris that affects the environment.
Handling uncompressed waste takes time, but by installing a cardboard baler or marine waste compactor systems, you can compact cardboard, plastic, and other recyclable waste instantly. Using a marine waste compactor at the waste source can provide multiple time-saving and efficiency-boosting advantages. Global Trash Solutions offers balers and compactors for marine waste management that have a small footprint and can compact common types of waste by up to 90%.
