You're kidding right? I carry a small folding shovel. Even with a full size shovel I'm not getting near someone else's discharge. It's bad enough using public dump stations.

This is quite a bit different than picking up garbage after someone, which I will do.

for those of you that say you can't or won't look for a dump station, I think you should stay at home and use your municipal sewage systems. trashing the pristine outdoors with your lame excuses or reasons will be the downfall of all of us being able to enjoy the public lands we can use now. this is not an entitlement for you to ruin the American experience. go home if you can't deal with finding a proper dumping station. sell your rv and stay close to what is a great convenience. apparently, camping in the woods was not made for you

Just don't dump

Judging from the nature of the mess, we must have just missed the culprit who dumped their black water tank and took off. We were dumbfounded that anyone could do this in such a pristine beautiful spot. I wish Id caught the person in the act, I would have instantly called the police. Gray water is one thing but dumping raw sewage is both criminal and dangerous besides disgusting. This behavior reflects badly on all of us honest RV enthusiasts.
This is exactly why I endorse not dumping grey, because it is too tempting to dump the crap too. Just don't do it and find a proper dump station or better yet, stay home!

I only dump my grey water in the city of Los Angeles. I consider this selfless contribution a necessary city improvement project.
