1. Remove all un-necessary boxes & wrappings that are on the products.
2. As you barbacue use it to burn some of the waste paper. The reason we don't have burn barrels on work boats is because a burning barrel is one of the distress signals... So don't put out to much of a smoke signal if you can help it. And don't burn your fish or steaks either.

3. If you can't fit a trash compactor on your boat then do the can stomp dance to flatten those cans. Remove the labels from the cans before you sail and mark them with stencil pencils and log the stamped markings on the cans also.

Note: Removing un-necessary boxes & wrappings also reduces the chance of having vermin on board also.
Also don't use cardboard boxes to separate products. All you are doing is installing apartment housing for vermin. Use Plastic boxes or milk crates.
