for strictly adhering to the following rules:
1. No wastes of any kind, other dishwater and grey water, may be discharged
overboard without the express permission of the captain. No exceptions.
Captain must log discharge.
2. Garbage, Trash and Plastics. No garbage, trash and especially no plastics
of any kind may be discharged overboard at any time. This includes aluminum
cans, plastic containers, paper goods, wood scraps, synthetic line and
all other ship-generated trash. All crewmembers will deposit trash, garbage
and plastic in the appropriate containers. These must be taken ashore
and disposed of properly. It is the captain’s responsibility to
log all shore side trash disposals and to keep any invoices for these

oil. This must include daily bilge checks and seeing that waste oil is
stored in appropriate containers. The captain must log all oil/fuel transfers

oil, will be placed in a covered metal pail and discharged ashore.
All persons discharging waste materials ashore will obey all applicable
local, state and federal laws. If in doubt, ask the captain. Any person
failing to comply with this plan will face termination. I have read and
understand this policy.
