I just want to know where the guy got his carrier bag from, as any bags I’ve used would never be good enough to hold a cassette loo full of p and poo! In the 80’s if you had an earth toilet, (for you youngsters it’s just a gap with a seat over), then the dustbin men would just come and shovel it out into a bucket to be added to the usual refuse lorry, so I can’t see a major problem, the collectors should be suitably attired for any type of waste deposited, not that I’d do it mind.

Oh Dear !
The motorhome police/mafia are wound up
Calm down and read this post from Dee #52 and others by her.
The guy was wrong but who knows how good his bag was.
To follow up Dee's post...
How many baby nappies and old persons nappies get deposited (Correctly) in the household/ commercial (Care homes) rubbish collection system.
Can we (or not) assume the Recycling company know what they are doing (or should I say doings)
Some might be not convinced by Campervanannies solution
I don’t care if people are convinced or not by my solution it’s what worked for me and it’s not like I crap in a bag every time mostly I use public loos where available but my problem is I cannot empty cassettes with regurgitated shit in it so I only pee in mine with no chemicals whatsoever in it I clean it out with cheap cola and this I have been doing this for 30 years and my bagged up poo just looks like dog poo so if I have to put it in a dog poo council bin nobody is the wiser.

I suspect it may have had holes to strain the contents so only the solids went in the bin 😂

You’ll find a 50 L bin liner with drawstrings fits over a toilet. Then place a square of kitchen roll in the centre. You find you don’t pee and poo at the same time. Shake contents down to bottom, just do knots in the bag, twice then stuff in a scented nappy bag, then a doggy bag. 😀

Wow I have often put this exact information on threads over the years it’s like you are s carbon copy of me 😂😂😂 except I use Tesco’s 25 ltr biodegradable food caddy bags and 3x squares of kitchen rol then I scoop up the bag squeeze the air out tie in a knot and place in an air tight bin until I can dispose of it

I assumed that this was the contents of a chemical cassette which was put in the bin. Fairly sloppy and unpleasant imho. I am guilty that I jumped to that conclusion, maybe it was bio liquid and had soakup pads or something to absorb the liquid which would be a risk to anyone emptying the bin. Nappies and incontinence pads whilst smelly, are less prone to spraying anyone even if the bag broke. Maybe the culprit triple bagged it also. But somehow doubt it!

Maybe he had cat litter in the bag and was on a long trip so desperate needs mean desperate measures.

Since coming off the road full time and selling our motorhome I have been involved a lot with keeping our locality clean. I started off litter picking (as we used to do on the road) then moved on to keeping our local recreation area clean and usable. This has involved me with a lot of contact with the local authority operatives and street scene department and portfolio holding councillor for the environment. Our litter bins and dog bins have a bag inside, The operative simply removes and ties the top of the bag before throwing into the back of a cage lorry, This litter is not sorted but goes into a crusher which produces a product that goes into cement production. I empty the bin in the recreation area which is also used for dog poo bags to save them bringing a vehicle onto the site. The operative does not handle the contents of the bins. img005.jpg

And what about those who use a plastic bag to dispose of their darling fur babies' waste in a rubbish bin. Any significant difference?

I pick up general waste from several care homes,if they included human waste they wouldn't be emptied,there's a totally separate waste stream for that as it's classed as bio hazardous wastes,usually done by a specialist company and sent for incineration. I'm not sure if the colour code applies across the country but they are usually yellow bins.

I was parked in a well known riverside beauty spot car park this morning. Only one other motorhome there and they proceeded to remove their toilet cassette and take it round to the hidden side of their van.
I could see underneath their motorhome and watched the owner empty the contents of the cassette into a plastic carrier bag and then carry the bag to a waste bin. This was a litter bin which would have to be physically emptied by a council worker.

I was shocked and disgusted at this behaviour and this to me is another example of why motorhomers have a bad reputation and are being banned from lovely spots.

Here we have the same problems but they don,t put it in the bin they just dump it in the hedge and drive of thats why many locals want motorhomes band from the beach carparks
I am shocked by this behaviour. As a new wild camper I am learning the ropes as I Go, but this type of thing would never enter my head !

Hi. Ooh well. Here's my 5 pence worth. Do not see the problem here. In Belgium human waste is spread on fields. Crops are then grown. In uk. Horse sh,,, is spread on veg gardens. And farmers spread cow/pig sh,,,,, onto there fields. Dog poo is put in dog bins.the old fashioned cess pits the wet waste drained into surrounding soil. And some councils say put dog bags in normal litter bins. So why not human waste in bins. IF. I was to dispose of my waste in carrier bag. Then into bin and someone came up and told me I should not. Then I would tell him. Calmly politely that he should keep his/her opinions to themselves and if they did not like/ agree with what I did. Then phone police or whoever I will wait here and they can report me. Here they can use my phone to do it. If there is signs. Bylaws saying you should not dispose of Things then that's different. I do get annoyed when people think that there opinion is right and then proceed to tell others what to do and how/why. Every one has there own opinions thoughts ideas. That is there right. It is not there right to I suppose dictate to others what to do or how to do it. There is more then one way to be right. There are many ways to be right. Ok. Now calming down. Just finished two weeks holiday. So I have a few threads I intend to publish to get opinions.

👍treated human waste is used in the uk fields too, re yellow bins didn’t see any of those at my dads care home but that was 8 years ago, but give the people who use bags a bit of credit - we don’t want to poison anyone and we are not pooing in the open, apparently urine is good in the compost bin
