That's what I've been saying all along. The term dump_station is widely
used in the U.S., even to the extent that official signs use the term
(without the underscore, of course). People in this discussion are
resisting it as a top level tag (amenity=dump_station) but it's one I think
is very appropriate. And much better than waste=chemical_toilet, which is
ambiguous (is the toilet the waste or its contents?)  I have a similar
objection to the term toilet:disposal=*

Neither phrase is in common use in the U.S.
