    I think (and I hope) that it works like a port-a-potty or rent-a-john --- the waste is kept in a compartment under the restroom.  When the plane lands (if the compartment is full) , a truck comes and sucks the waste out and takes it to some facility.

    As I said, I dont know that for fact, but thats the best guess I have and the only option Im willing to consider. lol     Gross question but a good one!

      Thanks windygreen! I was hesitant at  first but my curiosity had me posting this question. Knowledge does not hurt, right?
