1. Introduction

1.1 Purpose and aims of this handbook

The purpose of this handbook is to provide Antarc�ca New Zealand staff with prac�cal
procedures for the handling, storage and disposal of waste in Antarc�ca and Christchurch. The
handbook is intended to aid in the planning of Antarc�ca New Zealand waste management
ac�vi�es and to provide a background to the Antarc�ca New Zealand waste management
procedures.

The handbook covers the waste cycle from the point of genera�on, i.e. before items are sent to the
Antarc�c, to when they are returned to New Zealand as waste. Each waste category is treated
separately in the handbook reflec�ng the different handling and disposal measures required.
Strong emphasis is placed on waste minimisa�on strategies and the importance of correct
packaging and labelling of waste intended for return to New Zealand.

1.2 Waste management in the Antarctic

Antarc�ca New Zealand must comply with interna�onal regula�ons for waste management
agreed to by countries who have signed the Antarc�c Treaty. These agreements, principally
Annex III of the Protocol on Environmental Protec�on to the Antarc�c Treaty (the protocol), set
out specific rules for waste disposal and management and aim to ensure that the impacts of waste
ac�vi�es on the fragile Antarc�c environment are minimised. The protocol is enforced in New
Zealand legisla�on through the Antarc�ca (Environmental Protec�on) Act 1994.

Antarc�ca New Zealand is commi�ed to complying with the requirements of the protocol.
Current Antarc�ca New Zealand waste management procedures (set out in this handbook)
reflect this commitment. The successful implementa�on of Antarc�ca New Zealand’s waste
management procedures are dependent on persons in Antarc�ca and Christchurch following the
procedures in this handbook.

1.3 How to use this handbook

This handbook should be referred to by all persons involved in the handling, storage and disposal
of waste materials at Sco� Base, at Antarc�ca New Zealand field site s and in Christchurch.

Users should refer to the appropriate chapter of the handbook for the correct procedures to deal
with each type of waste generated in Antarc�ca. Specific procedures are set out for the
separa�on, handling, storage and disposal of the following waste types:

• recyclables
• hazardous waste (chemical and other)
• general waste

Antarc�ca New Zealand staff with responsibility for different aspects of the waste management
system are iden�fied in sec�on 2.2. Refer to this sec�on to determine your role in the Antarc�ca
New Zealand waste management system.

5
The handbook is to be reviewed annually at the comple�on of each summer season. Any
problems rela�ng to the day to day implementa�on of these procedures should be noted and
reported to Sco� Base Management or the Environmental Advisor, Christchurch. Users are
also asked to bring any errors, addi�ons or omissions in the handbook itself to the a�en�on
of the Environmental Advisor. Sugges�ons are welcome on ways to improve procedures or
this documenta�on.

2. Waste Management Procedures

2.1 Antarctica New Zealand’s waste management cycle

Antarc�ca New Zealand has waste management procedures which set out the requirements for
waste handling, storage and disposal (refer Appendix I). Antarc�ca New Zealand’s overall policy
statement on waste management is:

Antarc�ca New Zealand will minimise, reuse and recycle waste generated by its
ac�vi�es as far as prac�cable and will ensure that waste is disposed of with minimal
environmental impacts. Waste management planning will examine the use, where
appropriate, of alterna�ve technologies, materials and disposal op�ons, and iden�fy
areas of past ac�vity which require future clean up and/or remedia�on.

Minimisa�on is the key means of reducing the logis�c and environmental impacts of waste. Once
waste is generated, however, an important basis for the procedures are the requirement to
separate wastes to allow appropriate handling and disposal. The main components of
the waste management system (procedures for which are detailed in this handbook) are
summarised below.

Waste separa�on

Waste is separated into three main categories: general (non-hazardous, non-recyclable);


recyclable; and hazardous (chemical and biohazardous). The types of waste which fall into
each of these categories and their disposal routes are listed in the table below.

Waste Types Items Disposal/Reuse Path


General Non-recyclable card and Returned to Christchurch and
paper taken to landfill

Sanitary waste
Sharps

Human solid and liquid waste, and domes�c waste treated by the wastewater treatment plant at Sco� Base

Antarc�ca New Zealand Waste Disposal Routes

Almost all wastes are returned to New Zealand each season by ship. At Sco� Base sewage and
grey water are treated using a fixed media biological system with UV steriliza�on, and
discharged into the sea. At coastal field sta�ons sewage and grey water are disposed of into the
sea.

In Christchurch, hazardous waste is sent (as appropriate) to specialist disposal operators.


Recyclable materials are sent for recycling and general non-hazardous waste is disposed of in the
Christchurch landfill.

The handling and disposal of different waste types is summarised in Appendix II.

2.2 Responsibility for waste management

The Manager Environment holds overall responsibility for Antarc�ca New Zealand’s waste
management. The Environmental Advisor is responsible for developing, monitoring and
reviewing the Waste Management Handbook, and for preparing reports for circula�on in
the annual Exchange of Informa�on under the Antarc�c Treaty. Implementa�on of the
waste management policy and procedures is the responsibility of the Antarc�c Support Group,
overseen by the Antarc�c Programme Manager.

8
Important: Although specific waste management responsibilies rest with parcular individuals
and posions, each person who produces waste of any kind must ensure the waste is clearly
idenfied before it is passed onwards to the next person.

Waste management responsibili�es – Sco� Base staff


All personnel Separate waste materials and place in appropriate containers or
storage areas at Sco Base.
Sco� Base Coordinator Hold overall responsibility for waste management at Sco Base and
in the field, ensure that all base staff have the resources necessary
to carry out their waste management responsibilies and
Brief all visitors to Sco Base on their individual waste
management responsibilies and oversee waste management tasks
undertaken by base service staff.
Cargo Handler Document, correctly pack and return waste to New Zealand,
including hazardous wastes and dangerous goods the Cargo
Handler may refuse to accept any materials which are not
appropriately idenfied or packaged.
Chefs Ensure that all kitchen wastes are properly disposed of, including
separaon of recyclables andimplementaon of relevant secons
of the Antarcca New Zealand Biosecurity Policy.

Supervisor pares, make sure each event has a designated waste management
person, and oversee waste management in the field.
Field Support Provide field events with appropriate containers, bags and other
requirements for carrying out waste management procedures in
the field, store human field waste on return, and carry out Cargo
Handler’s role in winter.
Field Training Provide field waste management informaon to field pares and
Instructors demonstrate field waste handling requirements and procedures.
Field Event Leader Ensure field waste management procedures are implemented in the
field, and waste is taken to the correct storage areas on return.

3. Waste Minimisation

3.1 Why minimise waste?

The less waste Antarc�c ac�vi�es generate, the less waste there is to dispose of. Disposal of
Antarc�c wastes has both environmental and financial costs. By minimising the volume of waste
produced these costs can be reduced.

Waste minimisa�on involves three main components;


reduc�on;
reuse; and
recycling.

For waste minimisa�on to be effec�ve effort must be made in each of these three areas. Waste
minimisa�on should be a key considera�on in all areas of Antarc�ca New Zealand opera�ons,
from purchasing to packaging waste and cargo for return to New Zealand, as shown in the
diagram on the following page. This sec�on of the handbook sets out measures for waste
minimisa�on which apply across Antarc�ca New Zealand.

3.2 Waste minimisation measures

The following guidelines and procedures set out the prac�cal measures required to minimise
waste volumes.

Measures to reduce waste volumes

Purchasing guidelines
Antarc�ca New Zealand has developed a set of guidelines to assist staff responsible
for purchasing materials that will be sent to Antarc�ca. The purchasing guidelines are set out in
full in Appendix III. The guidelines should be followed by the Purchasing Officer and any
other Antarc�ca New Zealand staff purchasing items to be sent to Antarc�ca, including all
category controllers.

Packaging
Excessive packaging
Manufacturers product packaging is o�en excessive and not required. The Logis�cs Officer
(Cargo), where prac�cable, is to remove any packaging which is not required to transport the
goods to Antarc�ca.

Inappropriate packaging materials


It is likely that items will arrive at the Antarc�ca New Zealand store in Christchurch packed
in materials which cannot be sent to Antarc�ca. The Logis�cs Officer (Cargo) will replace
all polystyrene beads, chips or similar forms of loose packaging with bubble wrap, cardboard
or paper. Vermiculite is only to be used when packing hazardous liquids.

At Sco� Base, the Cargo Handler is to use cardboard, bubble wrap and paper to pack cargo
for return to New Zealand. Use vermiculite for packing hazardous liquids only.

11
Reuse of materials

The reuse of materials is an effec�ve way to minimise the amount of waste produced.
Opportuni�es for reuse occur in most work areas. In par�cular the following measures should be
taken:

reuse office paper wherever possible;


double side photocopying if appropriate;
use cardboard as a packaging material in retro containers as much as possible;
reuse �mber and metal off cuts at Sco� Base where possible;
reuse fabric off cuts or worn out clothing as rags in the work shops where the fabric is
suitable for this purpose; and
store packaging materials such as paper, bubble wrap, cardboard and vermiculite for reuse.

Recycling materials

Recycling involves separa�ng and collec�ng material which would otherwise join the general
waste stream so it can be reprocessed into other products. Antarc�ca New Zealand currently
recycles all metal, metal cans, aluminium cans, corrugated cardboard, mixed paper and card (not
contaminated with food), plas�c (all types including banding, courier bags, bo�les, polystyrene
etc). Refer to chapter 7 of this handbook for specific handling and transport procedures for
recyclable materials.

4. Prohibited Products

4.1 Products not to be sent to Antarctica

The following products are not to be posted, taken by any person or sent in any cargo to
Antarc�ca:

polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs);


non-sterile soil;
polystyrene beads, chips or similar forms of packaging (except vermiculite which is limited
to packaging of hazardous liquid waste); and
pes�cides (other than those required for scientific, medical or hygiene purposes).

The Purchasing Officer and category controllers are to ensure that none of these products are
purchased by Antarc�ca New Zealand for sending to Antarc�ca. Food items likely to carry soil
(e.g. vegetables) are to be washed and this requirement specified to the supplier.

The Logis�cs Officer (Cargo) is responsible for checking, as far as prac�cable, all southbound
cargo to ensure it does not contain prohibited products.

All Antarc�c personnel are to be informed of the prohibi�on on these products at pre-season
training and in informa�on sent out pre season, in an effort to ensure science and other event
cargo does not contain prohibited products.

4.2 Products discouraged by Antarctica New Zealand

The use of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and vermiculite products is to be discouraged except where
no prac�cable alterna�ve exists. The Antarc�ca New Zealand Purchasing Officer and category
controllers are to make every effort to ensure that the purchase of PVC products and
vermiculite packaging is minimised.

4.3 Items requiring a Permit

A permit is required by any person intending to take or send to Antarc�ca any of the following
items:

radionucleides;
any non-na�ve (non-indigenous) species of animal or plant (including seeds); and
any non-na�ve microorganism (including viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi and yeasts).

Applica�on to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to take these items to Antarc�ca should
be made as part of the annual Preliminary Environmental Impact Assessment process via the
Antarc�ca New Zealand Environmental Advisor.

Any plant or animal for which an authorisa�on has been issued is to be removed from Antarc�ca
a�er use.

14
This sec�on does not apply to the importa�on of food into Antarc�ca provided that no live
animals are imported.

15
5. Documentation
All wastes intended for return to New Zealand must be adequately labelled and documented in
accordance with the following procedures. It is the responsibility of the Cargo Handler
(summer) and Field Support (winter) to ensure that all chemical or biological wastes are
correctly labelled and inventoried.

Important: The origin and identy of waste of any kind should always be known before it is
taken to, or accepted by, the Cargo Handler.

5.1 Waste labelling

Correct, clear labelling is essenal for all waste returned to New Zealand. Remove ALL old
labels from triwalls, drums or waste containers or place new labels directly over the old ones.

Each item must be labelled to display the following informaon:

brief descripon of the contents;


hazardous labelling as required; and
Transportaon Control Number (TCN) at me of shipment;

Scky labels tend to come off metal containers, including drums. The contents and packing date
should therefore be clearly painted on these using stencils, spray paint or paint scks.

5.2 Waste tracking

The movement of all Antarcca New Zealand cargo, including waste, is integrated with the
United States Antarcc Programme (USAP). Consult the cargo handler’s desk file for details on
filling out appropriate forms and general cargo handling procedures. The TCN (Transport
Control Number) must be included on all waste container labels.

The logiscs secon, Antarcca New Zealand Christchurch, receives all general waste returned
from Sco Base and arranges for its onward dispatch, disposal, recycling or reuse as appropri-
ate. All human, waste water treatment plant, food and food contaminated waste is shipped
directly to an MAF approved disposal organisaon from Antarcca. Containers are steam
cleaned before they are forwarded to the Antarcca NZ warehouse. It is essen�al that the
Logis�cs Sec�on is fully aware of the contents of all waste containers returned from
Antarc�ca. All waste cargo is to have a Packing Schedule aached giving details of its
contents and any special handling requirements.

Important: If at all unsure about the contents of any waste container intended for return to New
Zealand, ask the generator or originator of that waste for more details. This is parcularly
important for any waste that is hazardous or that requires special disposal and/or import
approvals.

No waste item or container will be accepted for return to New Zealand if the exact nature of
the waste is unknown.

16
6. General Waste
General waste includes non-recyclable, non-hazardous solid wastes such as
non-recyclable paper and card, fabric, �mber and other miscellaneous items. All
general wastes are to be disposed of in black rubbish bags and in accordance
with the following procedures. All general waste is taken to landfill on return to
New Zealand.

6.1 Scott Base

Compactable items

Small, compactable items such as non-recyclable paper and card are to be placed in the
labelled rubbish bins and recycling sta�ons WASTE NON-RECYCLABLE around Sco� Base. This
waste is des�ned for landfill so take care to remove all recyclables.

Domes�cs are responsible for emptying the recycling sta�ons and bins in communal
areas. Occupants of sleeping rooms and the vehicle workshop are responsible for emptying
their own bins and bags into the appropriate container. Full bags are to be placed in the large
steel bin on the kitchen landing.

It is the responsibility of the Engineering Supervisor to ensure that general waste is taken from
the landing, compacted into bales, labelled GENERAL WASTE and loaded into the
shipping container designated for general waste.

Large items

Scrap �mber can be placed in the large steel bin outside the carpenter’s shop. Other bulky items
or equipment for which no further use can be found should be taken to the Cargo Handler.
Some equipment may be recyclable in Christchurch. Check the recycling directory in Appendix IV.
Contact the Logis�cs Sec�ons prior to shipping to allow arrangements to be made. Follow the
documenta�on procedures in Chapter 5.

6.2 In the �ield

General waste in the field is to be collected in double black bags. It is the responsibility of the
designated waste officer within each event to ensure that all waste types are separated, labelled
and deposited to the correct places at Sco� Base. General waste bags are to be placed in the
labelled cage in the waste handling facility on return to base.

17
7. Recyclables
Recyclables include all recyclable glass, scrap metal, metal cans, aluminium cans, corrugated
cardboard, newsprint paper and office paper. Recycling sta�ons have been placed at various
posi�ons around the base. There are a total of eight recycling sta�ons at Sco� Base.
All recyclables are to be disposed of in accordance with the procedures below.

7.1 General procedures

All recyclables of the types listed above, generated at Sco� Base and in the field, are to be
returned to New Zealand for recycling. Collec�on points for recyclable waste are placed in the
following loca�ons, close to where the majority of recyclables are generated.

glass drum in kitchen, wine boxes in bar (sort by colour if possible remove
all corks, lids, and caps.
metal bin near garage

metal cans bin inside the kitchen

aluminium can crusher in bar


cans

corrugated neatly fla�ened and �ed into bundles then taken directly
cardboard to the waste handling facility

mixed paper and card recycling sta�ons and boxes (includes newsprint and magazines)

one sided office paper in appropriate boxes in Hatherton Lab and Foyer (to be re-used for
notepaper and scrap paper)

plas�cs (all) bo�les and containers = rinsed, lids removed, fla�ened and taken
to appropriate recycling sta�ons

wrapping, banding, courier bags = remove all paper labels and also
metal buckles from banding and take to appropriate recycling
sta�ons

polystyrene all polystyrene to be stored in appropriate container

Recyclable field waste

Double green rubbish bags are to be used for all recyclable waste returned from the field. It is the
choice of the party whether to separate the various recyclable types in the field or on return to
base, but the waste officer within each event is responsible for ensuring that they are separated
and taken directly to the correct collec�on point on base. Metal food cans must be washed before
placing in the appropriate recycling container.

18
General recyclable waste packing and labelling

Most recyclables are returned to New Zealand by ship. The Engineering Supervisor is responsible
for designa�ng a shipping container for recyclables and ensuring the recyclable wastes collected
around base are taken to the correct container and packed appropriately. The Cargo Handler
to be consulted for any unusual items, and is in charge of shipping documenta�on. Occasionally
shipments by air may be made. In the case of any movements by air, the Cargo Handler
responsible for receiving, packing, weighing, recording and storing the recyclable waste.

As far as prac�cable, separate triwalls should be used for different recyclable types, for example,
one each for, corrugated cardboard and newsprint. Bales of compacted cardboard, steel cans,
aluminum cans and full drums or bins of other recyclables can be loaded directly into containers.
Each triwall and drum is to be clearly labelled.

Bulky metal items can be transported separately and must be adequately labelled. Details rela�ng
to handling of each recyclable type are outlined in the sec�on below, and chapter 5 should be
consulted for instruc�ons on documenta�on for return to New Zealand.

Disposal in Christchurch

On arrival in Christchurch, recyclable wastes are to be collected by or transported to the


appropriate recycling company.

The Logis�cs Coordinator is responsible for coordina�ng the onward movement of all recyclable
materials in Christchurch. The waste minimisa�on directory provided in Appendix IV should be
consulted to locate reuse and recycling agencies in Christchurch.

7.2 Glass

Glass includes all waste bo�les and broken or disused glassware. All glass wastes
are to be placed in special bins (labelled) located outside the pantry area of the
kitchen. Wine bo�les in the bar should be separated by colour and placed back into
empty wine boxes.
Bo�les are to be taken to the waste handling facility or directly to the designated
container where they shall be returned to their boxes. Label boxes GLASS BOTTLES FOR
RECYCLING .

Bo�les are not to be broken but should be returned as whole bo�les.

19
7.3 Metal cans

Metal cans include all empty steel food cans and fruit juice cans. Clean metal cans are
to be placed in the labelled bin located on the landing outside the mess.

All metal food cans must be washed to remove food residues. Cans are to have both
ends removed and be squashed before placing in the bin.

Bags containing metal cans are to be placed in bales and loaded into the shipping container
designated for recyclables, for return to New Zealand. Label bales METAL CANS .

7.4 Aluminium cans

Aluminium cans include all so� drink cans and beer cans. Aluminium cans are to be
crushed in the can crusher in the Sco� Base bar and placed in the bin beneath labelled
aluminium cans only . Domes�cs place bags of cans in the temporary storage cage
or container outside the bar, which the Base Engineer is responsible for emptying.

Bags containing aluminium cans are to be placed in bales and packed into the shipping container
designated for recyclables, for return to New Zealand. Label ALUMINIUM CANS .

7.5 Other metal products

Metal products include all waste steel, aluminium, �n, wire, empty aerosol cans, empty fuel
drums and other metal items generated at Sco� Base and in the field. Useable metal is to be
retained at Sco� Base for building or other construc�on projects as appropriate.

All metal wastes are to be placed in the large steel bin outside the garage for return to New
Zealand. Large, bulky items may be palle�sed separately and labelled SCRAP METAL FOR
RECYCLING .

Note: Do not a�empt to crush or compact whole empty aerosol cans.

Fuel drums no longer suitable for containing fuel are to be reused to transport wastes for return to
New Zealand where it is prac�cable and safe to do so. Any excess drums for return to New
Zealand, not suitable for use as waste containers, are to be fla�ened prior to transport.

7.6 Cardboard

Cardboard for recycling includes all corrugated cardboard boxes and other items.
Triwalls are not recyclable and are not to be included. Corrugated cardboard is to be
reused for packing wherever possible. Surplus cardboard is to be taken to the waste
handling facility, where the Base Engineer will load the fla�ened and �ed bundles
into a triwall. When full the triwall is loaded into a shipping container dedicated for
cardboard only. Triwalls should be labelled CARDBOARD .

20
7.7 Paper

Paper for recycling includes office paper, cardboard, envelopes, newsprint and
magazines. One sided office paper (which can be re-used for note pads etc) should be
placed in the appropriate boxes in the Hatherton Lab, the engineering area and in the
administra�on office.

The Domes�cs should periodically box up outdated newspapers and magazines for return to
New Zealand.

Full bags and boxes of paper should be clearly labelled and handed to the Base Engineer for
packing directly into triwalls in the recyclables shipping container. Triwalls should be
appropriately labelled, e.g., PAPER FOR RECYCLING .

7.8 Plastics (all)

Plas�c for recycling include -


plas�cs 1,2,3,4,5, and 6, plas�c
courier bags, plas�c banding,
plas�c wrap and polystyrene
(Expanded Polystyrene EPS ).

Plas�cs should be taken to the recycling sta�ons and disposed of in Plas�c Containers 1 to 6 .

The domes�cs will collect the full bags from the recycling sta�ons and take them to Stg3 B waste
landing. All lids must be removed and disposed of in general waste. The Base Engineer will
collect the plas�cs from the Stg3 B waste landing and take them to the waste handling facility for
compac�ng and storage.

7.9 Other recyclables


A wide range of materials and equipment can be recycled on return to Christchurch. Appendix IV
contains a directory of recycling agencies, which should be consulted in planning for the return of
items to New Zealand. Examples of recyclables in Christchurch include building materials,
computers, materials and packaging, tex�les and wood products.

Surplus computers, instruments or communica�ons equipment for return to New Zealand may
contain internal ba�eries or radioac�ve components. Liaise with the Science Technicians for the
correct packing procedures for these items.

8. Hazardous waste
Hazardous wastes includes all fuel and oil products, oil spill wastes (eg soil, water and
absorbents), anfreeze, coolant, contaminated water, baeries, asbestos, aerosols, explosives, all
paint products, compressed gas cylinders, detergents, disinfectant and glue, mercury, radioacve
wastes and laboratory chemicals. Breakable items are also covered in this chapter.

Biohazardous wastes include human waste from the field, sanitary and medical waste. Sharps and
breakables are also considered hazardous. These are dealt with in chapter 9.

All hazardous waste is to be handled and disposed of in accordance with the procedures in the
following two chapters.

8.1 General procedures

All hazardous waste, generated at Sco Base and in the field, is to be returned to New Zealand for
appropriate and safe disposal. The Cargo Handler is responsible for overseeing the storage,
packing, weighing, labelling, documentaon and shipment of all hazardous waste at Sco Base.
However, science personnel should be closely involved in correctly packaging any hazardous
waste they generate.

All hazardous waste is to be returned to New Zealand by ship. All triwalls, boxes and drums to
be used for packing hazardous waste must be in good condion. Hazardous substances with non
compable hazardous classes should never be mixed together in the same triwall, box or drum,
and in some cases not on the same aircra or in the same shipping container. Always refer to the
appropriate aircra and shipping instrucons.

Remove all old labels from hazardous waste containers i.e. totally remove markings or paint over.
Old labels and markings are not to be just crossed out.

Important: The packing and transport of hazardous waste is a specialist area. Refer to the
Cargo Handler at Sco� Base or the Logis�cs sec�on in Christchurch and specific shipping
documenta�on for packing requirements.

In parcular refer to the following documents as appropriate:

Air Transport
Preparing Hazardous Materials for Military Air Shipments and the IATA Manual

Sea Transport
The Interna�onal Mari�me Dangerous Goods Code for Shipment by Sea (IMDGS)

All hazardous cargo for return to New Zealand must be idenfied, packed (unsealed) and made
ready for the United States Hazardous Team inspecon and cerficaon. A Shipper’s
Declara�on for Dangerous Goods form (refer Appendix V) must be raised for all hazardous
items transported by air and sea. In addion Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for all
hazardous wastes intended for return to New Zealand must be included with all documentaon.
A set of MSDS is available at Sco Base from the Engineering Manager.

22
For advice and opera�on of these procedures the Cargo Handler is to maintain a close liaison
with the USAP Hazardous Department located at McMurdo Sta�on.

Note: Only authorised personnel are able to cer�fy the dangerous goods form. This person will
usually be the Sco� Base Cargo Handler or from USAP. It is therefore essen�al that the
hazardous team at McMurdo is contacted BEFORE a�emp�ng to ship any hazardous waste
items.

Refer to the Cargo Handler’s desk file for specific procedures and contacts at McMurdo Sta�on.
It is essen�al that introduc�ons are made with US personnel during the winter to
summer handover period.

Disposal in Christchurch

All hazardous waste generated by science par�es received in Christchurch is to be forwarded by


the Logis�cs Sec�on to the event leader or their parent organisa�on for correct disposal in
New Zealand unless otherwise directed.

All other hazardous waste is to be disposed of in Christchurch or another loca�on as appropriate.


The Logis�cs Coordinator should contact the appropriate companies or authori�es to arrange for
correct disposal of hazardous wastes.

Some contacts for oil products and hazardous wastes are provided in the CCC Recycling Directory
in Appendix IV. A list of current hazardous waste disposal firms is to be kept and updated by the
Logis�cs Coordinator

8.2 Oil products

Oil products include waste JP8 (also known as AN8), mogas, kerosene, engine oil, lubricants, any
soil or water (requires MAF cer�ficates) containing oil products, waste oily rags and used oil
filters.

Waste oil products are to be collected in appropriately labelled drums stored in the connex box
outside the garage. At a minimum, they should be separated into:
Waste oil
AN-8
Mogas
Kerosene
Thinners
Coolant
Other categories may also be necessary, and different types of substances should under no
circumstances be mixed together. Drums should never be filled right to the top, as temperature
changes may cause expansion of liquids - leave 100mm ullage. For return to New Zealand they
should be strapped together on a palle� and placed in a shipping container (this is considered
secondary containment and no overpacking of drums is required). The Engineering Supervisor is
responsible for overseeing the collec�on of waste oil products.

Oily rags are to be placed in an overpack drum, located in the garage. Drums of oily rags are to
be labelled WASTE OILY RAGS FOR DISPOSAL for return to New Zealand.

23
Used oil filters are to be placed in an overpack drum, located in the container outside the
garage. Drums of oil filters are to be labelled WASTE FILTERS FOR DISPOSAL .

Soil and water contaminated with oil products is to be returned to New Zealand in overpack
drums, clearly labelled.
Important: It is essen�al that the Antarc�ca New Zealand Logis�cs Coordinator is advised of any
soil or water for return BEFORE transport to New Zealand, to allow appropriate MAF import
permits to be acquired.

8.3 Antifreeze

All waste anfreeze is to be returned to New Zealand in labelled drums. Label drums WASTE
ANTIFREEZE/COOLANT .

8.4 Batteries

All waste baeries are to be returned to New Zealand. Baeries must be separated into three
categories for correct packing and transport: lead acid; lithium; and other dry cell baeries.

Dry cell ba�eries

Dry cell baeries are collected in the recycling unit located in the dining room
and Telecom room. With the excepon of lithium baeries, all other baery types
can be mixed for transport. Tape the terminals of all lithium baeries before
packing and transport. Baeries are to be packed into a special purpose plasc
baery dispatch boxes. Label DRY CELL BATTERIES .

Lead acid ba�eries

Lead acid baeries are used in vehicles at Sco Base and contain sulphuric acid. The baeries
are recycled in New Zealand. Baeries are to be taken to the Cargo Handler for correct
packaging and shipment. The following procedures are to be used when handling and
transporng spent lead acid baeries:

Baeries are to be drained;


A full face safety mask, gloves and protecve clothing are to be worn at all mes when
draining baeries;
Baeries are to be kept upright at all mes;
Baeries are to be placed in a special purpose plasc baery dispatch box (see mechanic) for
transport to New Zealand by ship; and
Label WASTE LEAD ACID BATTERIES .

24
8.5 Asbestos

All waste asbestos is to be returned to New Zealand for correct disposal. When working with
asbestos, all staff must follow the procedures laid out in the Antarc�ca New Zealand Asbestos
Policy (refer Appendix VI).

All asbestos waste is to be double-bagged in heavy duty plas�c bags and clearly marked as
asbestos. Any asbestos wastes which are too large for bagging are to be carefully wrapped in
plas�c shee�ng and sealed. Label ’WASTE ASBESTOS’.

The Logis�cs Coordinator in Christchurch should be contacted before any asbestos is shipped.

8.6 Aerosols

Damaged or partly used aerosols are to be returned to New Zealand for disposal. Label WASTE
AEROSOLS.

Follow the procedures outlined in 9.1 for specific packing, labelling and shipping requirements.

8.7 Explosives

Surplus explosives are NOT to be returned to New Zealand unless they are accompanying a
science event and are returned in the same year of transport to the Antarc�c. Surplus explosives
should be destroyed in a suitable loca�on by trained staff only. Consult the Programme Support
Supervisor before handling any explosives at Sco� Base.

8.8 Paint products

Paint products include all paint, thinners, paint stripper and solvents used for cleaning. Consult
the Maintenance Engineer in Christchurch before returning any unwanted paint product to
New Zealand.

Leave all paint products in their original �ns or cans. Label WASTE PAINT , THINNER or
STRIPPER as appropriate.

Empty paint product �ns are to be le� to dry, fla�ened and treated as for other metal waste (refer
6.5).

Used turps and solvents that can no longer be reused are to be stored in the labelled plas�c
containers in the paint storage DG cabinets beneath the Radial Arm Saw in the Carpenter s
workshop. Contaminated water from clean-up should also be collected here. Once full, the
container should be taken to the connex outside the garage, and poured into the drum designated
for solvents.

25
8.9 Detergents, disinfectants and glue

Detergents, disinfectants and glues may be required to be returned to New Zealand. Consult
the Purchasing Officer before returning any detergent, disinfectant or glue product to New
Zealand.
Leave all detergents, disinfectants and glue in their original bo�les or containers. Label WASTE
DETERGENT DISINFECTANT or GLUE .
Follow the procedures outlined in 9.1 for specific packing, labelling and shipping requirements.

Empty plas�c bo�les or containers are to be washed and treated as for other plas�c waste (refer
sec�on 7.8). Empty glue �ns should be le� to dry, fla�ened and treated as small metal waste.

8.10 Compressed gas cylinders

All used compressed gas cylinders are to be returned to New Zealand. Some cylinders are
required to be vented before transport. Antarc�ca New Zealand currently uses the following
cylinder types at Sco� Base and in the field:

oxygen
helium
acetylene
carbon dioxide
nitrogen
calibra�on gases
refrigerants
LPG & propane
argon

Never use oil or grease on the threads of regulators used on any compressed gas cylinder. All
cylinders being returned to New Zealand must have their screw-on caps securely fastened.

Follow the procedures outlined in 9.1 for specific packing, labelling and shipping requirements.

Surplus dry powder ex�nguishers should be dismantled and the nitrogen gas cartridge removed.
Empty any powder into a drum and mark as WASTE FIRE EXTINGUISHER POWDER .
(Waste powder is to be returned to New Zealand for training purposes). Empty ex�nguishers are
to be returned to New Zealand for hydrostat tes�ng and/or disposal by an appropriate contractor.
All gas cartridges are to be returned to New Zealand for refilling. Label COMPRESSED
NITROGEN CYLINDERS .

Note: CO 2 ex�nguishers are to be returned to New Zealand for servicing including hydrostat
tes�ng.

26
8.11 Mercury

Mercury will most commonly be found in thermometers and is highly toxic.

Note: All waste mercury items are to be returned to New Zealand aboard the ship at the end of
season. Under no circumstances is waste mercury to be transported aboard aircra�.

Waste thermometers must not be broken but are to be returned to New Zealand complete. Label
WASTE MERCURY .

Follow the procedures outlined in chapter 5 for specific packing, labelling and shipping
requirements.

8.12 Radioactive wastes

Science research ac�vi�es are the sole generator of radioac�ve waste in the New Zealand
programme. All radioac�ve waste must be returned to New Zealand for disposal.

All science personnel are to ensure that, if possible, any radioac�ve waste is returned to New
Zealand packaged in the same manner as it was transported from New Zealand.

8.13 Vermiculite

Vermiculite consists of flakes of silica and is used as a packaging material for hazardous
substances. The use of vermiculite in packaging sent to Antarc�ca is discouraged wherever
alterna�ves exist. Any waste vermiculite should be used where possible for repackaging
hazardous chemicals or waste for return to New Zealand. If it cannot be reused, it is to be
returned to New Zealand in a lined triwall marked WASTE VERMICULITE .

8.14 Other chemicals

All waste chemicals are to be returned to New Zealand. No hazardous chemicals are to be
disposed of down sinks at Sco� Base including in the wet lab. The minimum quan��es of
chemicals are to be kept at Sco� Base. Science personnel are not to leave any chemicals at Sco�
Base at the comple�on of their event (unless par�cipa�ng in mul� year funded projects).

In general all unused chemicals are to be returned to New Zealand in their original containers, eg
glass or plas�c bo�les. Tops must be securely fastened and sealed using plas�c packing tape.
Heavy duty gloves, protec�ve clothing and eye protec�on are to be worn when handling chemical
containers.

27
8.15 Breakables

Breakables includes all non-recyclable glass (e.g. toughened and reinforced) and any other items
which may break into sharp pieces in transit. These items should be taken to the Cargo Handler
for packaging into an overpack drum and labelled for contents, e.g. NON RECYCLABLE GLASS
FOR DISPOSAL .

Important: Fluorescent tubes and lamps are not to be broken and are to be placed in their
original boxes. Tubes and lamps should be packed together in a spearate box labelled
WASTE FLUORESCENT TUBES and packed into a triwall. Fluorescent tubes should be recycled by
Interwaste on their return to New Zealand.

28
9. Biohazardous waste
Biohazardous waste includes all food and food contaminated waste, sanitary, medical and human
field waste. All such waste is to be handled and disposed of in accordance with the following
procedures.

9.1 General procedures

All bio-hazardous waste, generated at Sco� Base and in the field, is to be returned to New
Zealand for appropriate and safe disposal. The Engineering Supervisor is responsible for
designa�ng a shipping container (and/or other storage areas) for biohazardous waste and
ensuring that such waste is collected from around the base and taken to it. The Base
Engineer is responsible for overseeing the storage, packing, labelling, documen�ng and
shipment of all bio-hazardous waste at Sco� Base. Because of the health and safety risks for
staff handling this waste, it is cri�cal all personnel, whether on base or in the field, collect and
package their waste appropriately.

Biohazardous waste packing and labelling

All biohazardous waste is to be returned to New Zealand by ship in clearly labelled, sealed
receptacles. As far as possible, all these wastes requiring specialist disposal on arrival in
Christchurch, should be packed together in a designated shipping container(s).

The Logis�cs Coordinator is responsible for ensuring all the biohazardous waste is transported
directly to the approved disposal agent on arrival.

9.2 Food waste

Food waste includes all food scraps as well as liquids which cannot be rinsed down
drains, such as fluid from poultry products. Packaging and other compressible items
should be removed for compac�on (see 8.3).

Food waste is to be collected in the kitchen in bins lined with two blue bags. The
Domes�cs and the Chefs are to place full bags in the appropriately labelled bin or box on the
kitchen landing. The Base Engineer loads the full bin/box directly into the shipping container
designated for food contaminated waste.

Food waste in the field

In the field, any food wastes generated should be collected in double blue bags. Generally straight
food scraps are kept to a minimum in the field, so unless the scale of the field party is such that
separa�on is prac�cable, these can be mixed with the compactable items.

29
9.3 Food contaminated waste

Food contaminated waste includes all materials which may contain food, such as
packaging and servie�es. These are separated because they are compactable, unlike
straight food scraps with their very high moisture content.

Food contaminated waste is to be collected in labelled, blue bag lined bins in the
mess and the engineering offices, and from the recycling sta�ons - Food with Paper .
Occupants of sleeping rooms and other work areas are responsible for taking any food
contaminated waste to appropriate containers elsewhere on base.

The domes�cs are to take full food contaminated waste bags to the bins on the kitchen landing.
The Base Engineer is responsible for seeing that the bins are taken from there and the waste
compacted. Completed bales are to be labelled FOOD CONTAMINATED WASTE and loaded
into the designated shipping container.

Food contaminated waste in the field

In the field, any food contaminated wastes generated should be collected in double blue bags.
Generally straight food scraps are kept to a minimum in the field, so unless the scale of the field
party is such that separa�on is prac�cable, these can be mixed with the compactable items.

9.4 Medical waste

Medical waste includes any used medical materials and any medical sharps.

Safe disposal of medical wastes in the responsibility of the First Aid Officer at Sco� Base.

Used materials

All non-sharp used medical materials such as dressings, tongue compressors and swabs should be
placed directly into the yellow biohazard bag in the first aid room. When full, the bag should be
taken directly to the waste handling facility and placed into the labelled, plas�c lined box for this
purpose. Once full, the box is to be strapped, labelled MEDICAL WASTE and stacked directly
in the shipping container designatedfor biohazardous waste.

Medical sharps

All medical sharps such as used syringes, needles, and blades should be placed directly into the
sharps container supplied in the first aid room. Full containers should be taken to the waste
handling facility as for used materials.

9.5 Time expired medical supplies

All �me expired medical supplies should be packaged securely, labelled TIME EXPIRED
MEDICAL SUPPLIES and passed to the Cargo Handler for return to New Zealand.

30
9.6 Sanitary waste

Sanitary waste includes all used sanitary pads, tampons and condoms. Pads and
tampons should be placed directly into the marked bins in the women’s toilet
cubicles at Sco� Base (the Disbins) or put into bags in the field for return to Sco�
Base. Condoms should be disposed of in either the sanitary bin in the women’s
toilet, or in the biohazardous containers in the ablu�on areas, NOT in general
rubbish bags and NOT down the toilet.

It is the responsibility of the Domes�cs to remove the bags from the bins and place
them into yellow biohazard bags, which are to be taken to the waste handling
facility once full and placed in the appropriate box.

9.7 Laboratory biological waste

Science events using the wetlab may generate wastes contaminated with plant or animal products
or soil. The Science Technicians and Engineering Services personnel, in their rou�ne sewage
plant and water supply quality checks, will generate slides and petrie dishes with bacterial
colonies on them. None of these wastes should be placed in the general waste bags - a bin lined
with a yellow biohazard bag is provided in the wet lab for this purpose. Full bags should be taken
to the waste handling facility and placed in the marked box.

9.8 Human �ield waste

Human field waste includes urine, faeces and associated items generated away from Sco� Base.
In general, these are to be collected in lidded buckets and returned to Sco� Base and then New
Zealand for appropriate disposal in Christchurch.

The Field Support Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that field par�es are issued with the
equipment they require and that they are appropriately labelled and stored on return.

Human waste not required return to Sco� Base


The only excep�ons to collec�ng and returning human waste in the field are:

1. For field par�es working on or adjacent to the sea, sieved grey water and human waste may
be discharged unmacerated directly to the sea or seashore below the high water mark; and

2. On snow and ice covered areas, grey water and human waste may be discharged unmacerated
to an ice pit or crack but only when transport limita�ons prevent removal of such wastes to
Sco� Base. Grey water is to be strained before disposal to removed solids.

Human wastes and grey water are NOT to be disposed of in any ice free areas or in melt water
catchments or ice flows which terminate in ice free areas.

31
Return of human waste to Sco� Base

In all other cases, solid human waste, urine and grey water are to be returned to Sco� Base. They
are to be collected in lidded plas�c buckets.

Solid human waste is to be collected in 20 litre clip-top containers, and urine and grey water in 25
litre screw-top containers. (The clip top containers are not secure for liquids). Do NOT fill the
screw top containers beyond three quarter full with liquids, as freezing results in considerable
expansion.

All buckets containing human wastes must be clearly labelled and stored at Sco� Base in the
refrigerated shipping container provided for return to New Zealand.

Important: A ny personnel working away from Sco� Base or their main camp (and toilet
facili�es) are to carry the appropriate containers to collect any human waste generated during the
trip.

Female urinary can be obtained from the clothing store in Christchurch, and sieves for
greywater and bo�les for collec�ng urine are available from the Field Support Coordinator at
Sco� Base.

9.9 Scott Base Domestic Liquids

Domes�c liquid waste includes grey water (domes�c waste water,) and human waste in the Sco�
Base sewage system.

Grey water
Grey water (domes�c waste water) is to be combined with human waste from Sco� Base, treated
and discharged into the sea at Pram Point.

Important: Due to the risk of introducing diseases to wildlife, no poultry products are to be
disposed of into the Antarc�c environment. Care should be taken during food prepara�on
(including thawing and draining) to prevent any poultry wastes (including egg, fluid, bone or
skin) from being washed down the sink or into the in sinkerator unit in the Sco� Base kitchen.
All poultry wastes are to be put into the food waste stream.

Human waste (sewage)

All human waste (solid and liquid) is to be combined with domes�c grey water, treated and
discharged into the sea at Pram Point.

32
9.10 Cape Bird

Grey water

Grey water is to be sieved and discharged directly into the sea below the high water mark.

For procedures for human wastes in the field, see sec�on 9.8.

Applica�on Antarc�ca and Christchurch

Purpose Antarc�ca New Zealand will minimise, reuse and recyclewaste generated by its
ac�vi�es as far as prac�cable and will ensure that waste is disposed of with
minimal environmental impacts. Waste management planning will examine the
use, where appropriate, of alterna�ve technologies, materials and disposal
op�ons, and iden�fy areas of past ac�vity, which require future cleanup and/or
remedia�on.All wastes are to be handled and disposed of in accordance with the
following Antarc�ca New Zealand Waste Management Procedures. Prac�cal
measures for the implementa�on of the Procedures are set out in the Antarc�ca
New Zealand Waste Management Handbook.

Treaty Antarc�c Treaty Recommenda�on XV-3 sets out agreed prac�ces regarding
Obliga�ons waste management planning and disposal, and procedures for implemen�ng
them. Annex III to the Protocol on Environmental Protec�on to the
Antarc�c Treaty (the protocol) provides addi�onal measures for waste
management in Antarc�ca. These measures are legally binding under the
Antarc�ca (Environmental Protec�on) Act 1994.

Waste The Antarc�ca New Zealand Manager Environment is responsible for develop-
Management ing, implemen�ng and monitoring the Waste Management Procedures.
Planning Antarc�ca New Zealand staff and all Antarc�c personnel are to be given training
in environmental and waste management procedures. At Sco� Base, the Sco�
Base Coordinator has responsibility for implementa�on of the Waste Manage-
ment Procedures.

Prohibited The protocol prohibits some products from being sent to the Antarc�c
Materials because of their possible adverse environmental impact. These are:
poly chlorinated biphenyls (PCBs);
non-sterile soil;
polystyrene beads, chips or similar forms of packaging; and
pes�cides (other than those required for scien�fic, medical or hygiene
purposes).

Appendix III
Antarctica New Zealand Purchasing Guidelines
The following guidelines should be followed by the Antarc�ca New Zealand Purchasing
Officer and any other Antarc�ca New Zealand staff members purchasing items to be sent
to Antarc�ca. The guidelines have been developed in order for Antarc�ca New Zealand
to comply with its obliga�ons under the Protocol on Environmental Protec�on to the
Antarc�c Treaty (1991), domes�c law and to minimise the impact of waste management
ac�vi�es on the Antarc�c environment.

Basic Principle

Antarc�ca New Zealand’s Environmental Policy Statement sets out the basic principle under
which all purchasing should be conducted:

Antarc�ca New Zealand will aim to conduct its purchasing in a manner that contributes
to minimising the volume and impact of wastes produced including materials and supplies
which are recyclable or reusable or can be disposed of with minimal environmental
impact.

Appendix IV
Christchurch City Council Recycling Directory
Directory

43
This directory has been compiled to assist those wanting to reduce the cost of
waste disposal and reduce the amount of resources going to landfill. It contains
a list of businesses providing recycling services to companies in Christchurch.

Although this is a business directory the symbol H indicates the acceptance of


material from both businesses and households.

You can download a copy of this directory from the Christchurch City Council's
web site at www.targetsustainability.co.nz

If your business offers a recycling or reuse service and you are not already
listed in the directory, or if you would like to update your current details in the
directory, please fill out the Service Provider form at

Asbestos

Applica�on Sco� Base

Purpose Asbestos was commonly used as a lining material within buildings and as
an insula�on medium around pipes and containers.
All asbestos, whether it is white, brown or blue is now considered as a
health hazard. However, if the asbestos is non friable or interfered with
or disturbed in any manner, it cons�tutes li�le hazard.
There are several buildings under the control of Antarc�ca New Zealand,
which are known to contain asbestos. These buildings are generally the
older buildings such as:
1. The historic huts
2. The "TAE Hut"
3. The Geomag and Radar Huts
There may also be other buildings containing asbestos.

Policy Antarc�ca New Zealand will make the best possible endeavours to ensure
that persons working with asbestos are able to comply with the OSH
regula�ons 1992.
Antarc�ca New Zealand will make every endeavour to inform persons
carrying out work in areas known to contain asbestos before such work
commences.
They will also advise on the methods to be taken to handle any such
occurrences and ensure relevant literature dealing with asbestos handling
is provided. Appropriate protec�ve clothing and equipment will be made
available for those working with asbestos.

Procedures Ac�on to be taken if asbestos is found:


1. Should asbestos be found which must be disturbed to carry out that
work, WORK IS TO CEASE un�l a plan is put in place as to how to
con�nue.
2. Antarc�ca New Zealand is to be informed via the Sco� Base
Manager of any such discoveries.

Sco� Base Opera�ons Policy 03 – Asbestos 2006
Procedures Ac�on to be taking when working with asbestos:
Cont. Should it be considered impera�ve to work with asbestos without first
contac�ng Antarc�ca New Zealand, the following minimum precau�ons
are to be taken.
1. Read the occupa�onal or safety publica�ons (e.g. Asbestos Guide,
Safety in Construc�on No. 22, 1986) dealing with working with
asbestos. Copies of these publica�ons are held by the Sco� Base
Engineering Manager.
2. Minimum dress shall be:
i. Disposable overalls with head protec�on
ii. Gloves, close fi�ng to overall arms
iii. Breathing protec�on (depends up on type of material, friable or
non friable)
iv. Minimum clothing under the overalls
The overalls/gloves are to be kept isolated from other garments. At
the end of the working day all overalls and protec�ve equipment are
to be sponged down close to the work place.
3. The following procedures are to be adopted in the working area:
i. If prac�cable, the areas affected should be dampened with water
to ensure minimum dust flow
ii. During the day and specifically at the end of the project, all
surfaces are to be vacuum cleaned with machines equipped with
HEPA filters and NOT brushed
iii. Any wastes obtained are to be placed in heavy duty plas�c bags
for RTNZ and clearly marked asbestos
iv. Contaminated clothing is to be treated in the same due manor as
the items being removed
Wastes which, are too large for bagging, are to be carefully wrapped
in plas�c shee�ng and sealed. It is preferable that protec�ve crates
are formed to ensure the bags or sheets are not perforated in any
manner. They are to be clearly marked as containing asbestos.
