I was told, or read that it is the phosphates in the shampoos and pre-sprays that if run down the street , end up in the rivers etc. This causes algae growth and pollutes the river or water supply.

The camper dumps that I use are plumbed to the normal city sewer system. therefore it gets treated the same as sewage and is treated before it is released. If you do not have a camper dump station at some of your gas stations I feel for you , cause it would be a real pain to have to
drive home after each job , or set up hoses back to peoples toilets etc.
There isn't an easy answer for some of you..... I admit!

Like I said, I admit years ago I used to dumps down at the end of my block into a storm sewer. this used to run directly back to the river . I no longer do it. ......

John L above has a solution for some situations.

Doug do you hook up the auto pump out on every job or just the ones you know may go over the 100 gallons. I was going to get one for my Butler machine but didn't know if it would be a big pain or not ??

Usually I can get to an Rv dump between jobs... but some of the larger commercials ones an APO may be nice to have .

Do you really think that we are all lying to you steamer, For what purpose would we be lying ?

The world is changing and Your " bombs away" attitude is not very popular these days. For some people dumping at an approved site is next to impossible or extremely inconvenient . Some times when I am in this one town it only has two stations to dump and they are usually 5 miles out of the way. It's a pain and an extra 1/2 hour or more on the job.

but eventually a person will get turned in and the fines from what I hear are pretty high. So we TRY .... to Comply .

Cmaster : same here!

One hundred gallons of water weighs about 830 lbs. You think between soap and dirt there is another 1200 lbs of weight?

For my Toronto frieds;

RV and Camnper dealerships who also service RV's, travel trailers, pop-ups etc...will usually have a dump station.

There are some in Burlington and possible rexdale or just a bit north of Etobicoke...look up RV dealers.

or just dump in Lake Ontario --- fug it

Let all come to reality.  We dump and hope it doesnt hurt anything. THis earth has  obviously been here long before us and I wonder about us putting ourselves in a Gods position.  We are petty bickering when we may be a spec on the reality of lifes game and life will laugh at us just like another victom it takes in time. 
I can remove more spots than you can.
