:chatterRV waste disposal facilities at rest areas statewide to be permanently closed
March 27, 2003
People operating recreational vehicles will no longer be able to dispose of their solid waste at rest areas in Wisconsin. Many existing rest area waste disposal facilities need expensive repairs. As a result, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has made the decision to permanently close all recreational vehicle waste disposal facilities at all its rest areas throughout the state.
"Not only do these RV waste-handling facilities require hundreds of dollars in maintenance and repairs, but the functional lives of rest area septic systems are significantly reduced when RV holding tanks containing harsh chemicals cause surge loading as they are suddenly discharged into the system," Bureau of Highway Operations Chief of Roadside Facilities Manager Tom Lorfeld said. "The department has closed RV waste disposal facilities throughout the state in recent years as problems or costly repairs arose and it came to the point where we no longer could justify their continued operation."
Waste disposal facilities are available at many private campgrounds throughout the state, as well as at more than 20 state parks, state forests, and recreational areas. Wisconsin state statutes actually require that all campgrounds accommodating more than 30 RVs provide waste disposal facilities.

I believe some directories list dump facilities, but I dunno which they are.

Many municipalities have dump accomodation at their sewage treatment centers.

One after-trip home solution is Sewer Solution, which is a macerator pump and small diameter hose (also needs a water connection) to pulverize and pump the poop to a pipe (or even perhaps a toilet).
