Well this is why you have auxiliary vessels. Not only ships to resupply with torpedoes, anti-matter, personnel or dilithium, but also ones that pick up waste, or stations where it can be offloaded. There would be no reason to lug it around.
Which Starfleet did not have during Enterprise's first 3 years! During that time the Enterprise was Earth's only Warp 5 ship---there weren't even any civilian Earth ships that could go that fast. All the other Starfleet ships were Warp 3 or lower, and from what we saw, most civilian ships were limited to speeds between Warp 1 and Warp 2. Sure Starfleet might've contracted with a Vulcan carrier, but I doubt it. As far as Starbases go, from what we heard in Enterprise the farthest station from a Earth was Jupiter station.

They would have to have worked through the Vulcans, Denobulans or other aliens in the general vicinity. The Enterprise could not really operate outside the range of auxiliary supply craft or stations. They need anti-matter refueling, repair, dry bulk, personnel, etc. Most likely the Vulcans supplied the ship, but they may have found others along the way. These are issues that they would all have to face and as a result they could take advantage of each others resources. Surely if a Denobulan ship were in the vicinity of Earth and needed assistance or refueling, Earth authorities allow them to make use of Earth facilities.

You know, it's interstellar space. Any waste can be dropped into the nearest star.

Re: NX01 Refit

How much actual waste is there from matter-antimatter annihilation? !:! should result in only energy or perhaps plasma, and that likely goes outside after going through the warp nacelles or impulse drives.

How much supply does Enterprise have to go without resupply? Certainly not enough for a five year mission, but at least a year or two since they didn't seem to be having issues prior to returning to Earth due to the Xindi attack.

Well Enterprise visited Kreetasa, Tandar, Risa, Coridan, Mazar, and many more inhabited planets with obvious infrastructure in the first two seasons. If the crew needed supplies, they could have easily obtained them from there.

They won't get that far away from races that are at least known to their Vulcan allies, even if they manage to explore unknown spaces between inhabited interstellar species worlds.
