Alaska River Guide (9780882404974);1993, p49
The article gives a couple of tips for managing garbage during a river trip in Alaska. Carry out all trash and garbage; burying trash invites animals to dig it up and to prowl around the camp. Paper trash can be burned, but never burn plastic and aluminum foil. Fresh vegetable wastes can be burned or carried out. Pour wash water from dishes and personal washing into a natural depression or on a gravel bar far from any body of clean water. Use only biodegradable soap--and as little as possible.
