Rubbish Shute

Poop Deck on FRA Wave Prince featuring the rubbish shute.
Are these still in use these days and if so to what extent?
Royal Australian Navy have been in trouble lately for dumping at sea but they didn't have one of these shutes and they were simply tossing it over the side.

RFA ships retain all the gash onboard now xmt galley waste which goes through the macerator. All ships are equipped with compactors and new style incenerators are being fitted. We were "Green" before everybody jumped on the bandwagon!

I think the exposure of the RAN suggested they had gone "Green" as well but someone was taking short cuts.
On occasions I had to bring that shute inboard and use the chipping hammer on the inside to keep the trash clean, all the chippings I dropped over the side of course
Cheers
Ted
