Waste ?

Hey guys and girls,

We've been looking into this for a a while now but we run a commercial trawler and we are getting a lot of waste at the end of a trawl, what is everyone doing with it. We've been looking a small scale diesel incinerator, what has everyone else doing / thoughts on this?

Greetings,
Waste in what form? Human waste, by-catch, garbage? I don't know if I understand the question.

MARPOL Annex VI Reg 16 controls the incinerator installation. The MCA has a couple of MSNs that may be worth reading as well.

Americans will find guidance in 46CFR63.25-9.

I had that same issue with my center console. Bags and bags of waste until I found this baby. Now I can put all the waste in a walmart bag.

I dump my waste in the waist bin at the marina on my way home.

Yea, if you want good answers you have to ask good questions. Most of us are not mind readers.

We are the wrong sort of "Trawler owners" to be asking, try here
Commercial Fishing - Index

most of us usually carry ours up to the marina dumpster in a kitchen garbage bag.

We have a trash compactor in the galley and it's amazing how much compressed trash it takes to fill the bag.

We spent two weeks on board last summer and often had 4-8 people on board. By compacting the trash we didn't have to do the daily 'haul the trash up the dock' exercise. The bag was full at the end of the two weeks but it held two weeks of compressed junk.

The only thing we don't put in the compactor is glass bottles because they don't compress.

Smash them and they will take up far less room.

True! But they tear hell out of the compactor bags!

How many have a waste management plan posted on board?

IIRC our boat falls below the minimum length the requirement applies to. I could be wrong on this, however, but I think we've looked it up before and an actual waste plan specific to our boat is not required.

We do have the "don't do this" placard on the boat that defines in broad terms the basic handling of waste.

The Coast Guard stopped us last spring. During the inspection, we were told a waste plan was required. I think the requirement starts at 40 feet. They were kind enough to let us write one up while they were there so we did not receive a violation.

That is a similar experience to mine. We were out on a Thanksgiving day. It seemed that the Coasties had all their trainees on duty for the holiday. We were hailed and stopped by a crew on one of their inflatables. They were nice guys that came on board with their check list. We had gone through everything, when lastly they asked for a waste management plan. I opened the top step that contains our trash can and showed them a laminated plan for the boat. They were very surprised, and said that this was the first one they had found. They also said that they would not write me up if I didn't have one, but would just inform me about the requirement.

I think Marin is right about the 40' threshold.

Many of the long range boats/trawlers have a trash compactor, condense/throw in the garbage the bulk containers before leaving the dock, raw water wash food off garbage so can be stored, and burn/use what they can. The commercial discard the packing/wrapping at the dock.


I was not aware a waste management was required. I will have to look into this. Can you buy one at the marine stores?

I don't know how fancy it needs to be. Here is a sample I found somewhere (my apologies to the original author).

We just wrote out a statement on a piece of notebook paper that nothing would be thrown overboard and everything would be properly disposed of at the dock, signed it, and stuck it in with the boat documentation. That made the Coast Guard happy.

Phil, it is pretty simple. I just typed it up and printed it. Then put it in plastic and taped it on the bottom of the step tread that opens the trash compartment. Just say that you will bag trash, store it, and dispose of it on shore. It worked for me.

Ditto.

On the side of the cabinet, above the propane monitor.
