We have a bucket that used to have cat litter in it. I put a hole in the top the size of a std. hose that hooks to the trailer. We use it for a day or two, carry the container to the rest room, or out house at the camp site and pour it into the toilet. If there is a dump site at the camp ground, we take it there and pour it into the opening intended for gray or black water. the hose can not be to deep into the container used as the gray water gets deeper it will stop draining properly so keep the hose short after it passes through the lid. We only put about a gallon of gray water into the container making it easier to carry to the restroom. We pour the water into flush toilets at camp grounds also. NEVER ON THE GROUND AT CAMPSITES, the water could attract bad animals; bears,or other unacceptable smaller animals!

Later Kenny

We usually use paper plates and cups and plan to be pretty disposable during our trips but still need to clean our frying pans and coffee pot so we don't develop much gray H2o so we gather it in a large tub under our trailer but it only accumulates to a couple gallons a day which is just about enough to extinguish our fire at the end of the night (sometimes not enough) so I figure the poision that the fire leaves on the ground (which is exceptable) canceles out the small bit of soap residue (no black H2o). We usually burn our plates and cups so little is even left
