Human waste collected from portable toilets or “port-a-potties” is removed from the site by the sanitation vendor and disposed of in an approved manner. The applicant provides port-a-potties and hand sanitizers based on the anticipated peak population at the event and targets the locations where large numbers of spectators are expected to visit (BRC 2011e). The applicant’s Proposed Action Operating Plan (see Appendix 2) states that banks of toilets are placed at regular intervals along the exit road during the peak exodus periods. They would also be placed in the Art area and would be prominently lit at night (BRC 2011e). During the 2011 event, the port-a-potties nearest the Art area (i.e., on the open playa itself) were not highly visible and easily accessible (Aspen 2011). Trash thrown in the port-a-potties has been a problem; the applicant has undertaken outreach efforts during the event to educate visitors about appropriate use of the port-a-potties (BRC 2010b). The vendor hauls the effluent to the Washoe County.
The Paiute also have received additional funding from BRC outside of the event period. Mr. Scott Carey, Tribal Planner testified before the Senate Select Committee, stating:The Tribe is proud of our partnership with Black Rock Solar, the fund-raising arm of the Burning Man Festival. Using the solar demonstration systems program that the State Legislature approved, we have been able to construct eight solar projects on the reservation. This has led to substantial savings for the Tribe. For example, the community of Nixon has more solar panels per person than any other community in the United States. State Route 447 has more solar panels per mile than any other road in the United States and has been declared “America’s Solar Highway.” We are looking to expand our solar projects into commercial-sized projects (Nevada State Senate 2011).

Could we post something like this inside the potties?

If hover with your hands in the air, your thigh muscles are so big you can't shit anyway.
There once was a burner from Nantucket,
who pee'd each night in a bucket.
She'd always comply
and use just one-ply,
but with tampons, she said "Aw, f*ck it."
Remember: to throw tampons in
is a port-a-john sin.
Not poo or pee
or one-ply TP,
Tampons are made of thick cotton.
That burner, she backed up the flow
for all the others who had to go.
Her lesson, please learn
for a clean, happy burn:
TAKE YER TAMPONS ELSEWHERE!
