The NPR story left out solutions and primarily aired complaints. Why not add links to sites explaining proper feces etiquette for different areas. Should feces be buried 4 feet deep or 6 inches deep in desert or alpine areas? Should toilet paper be packed out or buried with the waste?
I attended a seminar this past weekend on handling human waste after a major disaster such as a Cascade Subduction Zone major quake and recommendations were given depending on rural, suburban, urban regions and expected duration before sanitation returned to "normal"/ Many opinions were expressed. Some were based on camping experiences.
Laws regarding disposal of solid waste in landfills vary so what to do with waste packed out in wag bags from the back country?
What are best practices for human waste? Coyotes, herbivores, and birds seem to just make a deposit on top of the ground and who is to argue? Cats bury their waste by scraping dust, dirt, and forest litter over the deposit which is shallow burial at best.
I don't know the answer(s).
Should WTW be leading the way?
Any experts here? I may be an expert on creating the waste but definitely not expert in proper disposal under varying conditions. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I thought getting old would take longer.
