How to filter your nasty kitchen grey water

I've posted this before I think, but everyone who uses this system loves it.
Bring about 10 pieces of burlap and replace when they are jammed up with crud (you can scrape off some non obnoxious stuff like coffee)
Put a capfull of bleach in the filtered water and just take it home with you. Putting it in a standard evap pond could make a stink.

on a much smaller scale (solo camper) I pour my grey water through a large funnel loaded with some aquarium filter floss into a 5 gallon container I bring home. The floss dries and I pack it out with my trash.
