Recyclable dry wastes are, for example: plastic, wood, cardboard and paper, glass and metal, such as aluminium.
Uson Marine systems for waste recycling include chute systems for transportation of different waste fractions to the garbage room, marine compactors, baling presses, shredders and crushers. These can reduce the volume of the waste by up to 90 percent (depending on the fraction). The compacted fractions are stored separately for recycling in port.
Hazardous waste is stored in fractions in separate, fire-proof storage compartments.
All vessels with accommodation areas will generate dust. Using a Uson central vacuum cleaning system will greatly improve the level of hygiene and air quality onboard. Safety will also be improved since onboard personnel will not need to negotiate several flights of stairs carrying vacuum cleaning equipment.
