What other uses exist in practice in addition to *waste=chemical_toilet? *
For camping we have run into two cases I would like to have covered:
1. Disposal of chemical toilet contents: a place where you carry a tank
to empty and clean it
2. A sink in the street: you drive your RV over it to empty waste water
tanks that are fixed in the car
Or do you also want to cover split collection of glass, plastic, organic
