I've been in an RV since 2003 and we've never had a grey-water problem, and only came close to a black-water one once (when a friend broke his foot but didn't want us to have to leave the playa early, so he used the toilet since he couldn't get to the porta-potties). Use disposable plates & bowls (burnables), use water sparingly for washing other dishes, if you must shower limit everyone to 1 or 2 for the week, depending on how many people are in there, and they are only allowed to run the water to get wet & rinse off. If someone wants more showers, they need to set up an outdoor unit or your group needs to figure out a way to deal with the gray water that doesn't rely on an extremely limit resource (United Services)
The pump truck guys told us there were only 16-18 trucks in the entire city and they were dedicated to the porta potties for the most part so couldn't stop, sorry.
Hopefully the Borg and United send another four or five truck out this coming year (please). But, if you can book in advance that would be awesome. Any hints for doing that?
United Services is there to deal with the porta-potties, any pump-outs are just an extra burden to them, and not to be expected. If BMorg adds extra trucks, it will be to deal with the blue rooms, not to make RVer's lives easier (and I'm an RVer, this is not coming from someone one of those "anti-RV" people).
Contracting service is easy - contact United Services, just like Trilo said in his post. However, don't
expect it to be cheap. Limited resource and all that.
