The composters must be a recent addition.

When I was there they questioned where you would dispose of every piece of waste, even bread crusts. The toilets were the pumpout kind and when they were nearly full they urged you to wait for the ship, unless emergency. Also they patrolled the harbor checking Y-valves. As everywhere there are those that are more uptight about their job than others.

Not that I didn't have a great time, and it is a wonderfull place to visit.
Just pointing out that digging a hole and C(*&ping is definitely going to get you on the bad list.

Yep.

I whizzed on the Yankee Freedom. It was a relief.

If you see someone walking along in the Keys with a backpack and a 5 gal bucket you will know he is a CF member.
