When you begin boating operations, how you will handle your waste disposal may not be your first consideration, but it quickly becomes a priority. Disposing of marine waste is more complex than it first appears. You cannot simply dump waste into the ocean — you need to collect it in marine waste tanks and then deal with the issue of emptying those tanks. But how do you do so safely? ERC can help.
ERC Is Your Source for All Your Marine Waste Disposal Needs
It is illegal to dump your Marine holding tank waste into any waterways. You need to dispose of it in an approved, Coast Guard-certified manner. That’s where ERC can help. We have methods for disposing of ballast wastewater, bilge wastewater, and other marine waste products in a government-approved and environmentally sensitive way.
ERC provides everything you need at the dock. We are Coast Guard Certified and TWIC authorized, providing convenient turnkey marine waste management and environmental services. We remove the waste from your vessel so you can get back out to sea sooner.
It is impossible to overstate the value of having a turnkey solution when it comes to dealing with marine waste. The last thing your crew wants to do after docking from a long journey is figuring out how to get all your marine tank waste to the nearest approved facility. When you hire ERC for marine waste management services, you don’t have to worry.
Just call us to set up a marine waste management plan and we can arrange to be there when you arrive to seamlessly take your marine waste off your hands. Once we do that, your part is done. We will take your waste to our facility and dispose of it responsibly.
This will give you much more freedom in your marine operations with less stress on your crew. Not to mention, you don’t have to pay for the extra time it takes them to transport your waste. You can also get back on the water almost immediately if you need to, free of waste and ready for the next journey.
In addition, you won’t have to be concerned about being in compliance with Marine waste disposal regulations. Our waste disposal methods are Coast Guard-certified so when you work with us, your waste will always be disposed of in accordance with government regulations.
