This is a good and practical handbook released by one of the most respected international entities. As the title implies, the idea of the authors was to provide the crew members as well as the shore support people of the tanker vessels with the necessary knowledge of how the wastes, commonly generated on board tanker vessels, shall be conducted without violating any applicable rule or regulation.

First of all, the readers will be acquainted with the general provisions of the MARPOL Convention and particularly Annex V to it, dealing with the garbage pollution prevention. This is followed by the practical guidelines covering virtually all that they need to know in order to dispose of the wastes and remaining in compliance. Here they will find the instructions on the proper use of the shipboard incinerator’s, galley and medical wastes, e-wastes, plastics, boiler wastes and so many other stuff.

After that, they will read about the proper record keeping since this is one of the most important factors, with the records subject to the checks by the port state control inspectors and other authorities. Also, there are some useful instructions provided for evaluating the adequacy of the waste reception facilities provided in the ports.
