You could dump it that way, but I tend not to be too wasteful, and if you heat it to extract all of the water, what you have left is reasonably good fertilizer. That should always have a market. If nothing else, the Star Port might want it for the plants in the port.

No colony can exist without dependable local air, water, and food. The former two are mined from asteroids and comets, if nothing else is around. It might get expensive on some weird, tiny colony, handled as a special case as part of game play. Any colony may make use of imported products for quality, variety, and luxury.
Any colony is always going to be using imported products. Depending on its size, it might be totally dependent on imported products for its equipment, and possibly food. One Traveller dTon is sufficient room for food for 5 people for one year.

that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.

No thanks. The compost pile is outdoors for a reason. I don't think that the starports are hard up enough for compost that every ship in the fleet is going to making some to drop off each week.
