Marine maintenance and repair facilities generate a variety of waste streams during repair and maintenance of mechanical systems, structural components, upholstery, electrical systems, and surfaces of ships and boats. Typical wastes generated from these operations, which present opportunities for waste reduction, are oils, coolants, lubricants, and cleaning agents; various chemicals; paints and coatings; as well as dusts from sanding, sand blasting, and polishing and refinishing operations. Both source reduction and recycling opportunities are identified. To help companies in the industry identify opportunities for waste reduction at their own facilities, the guide includes a set of worksheets which take the user step-by-step through an analysis of the on-site waste generating operations and the possibilities for minimizing each waste.
