Leave No Trace Principle #3
DISPOSE OF WASTE PROPERLY

 

  • Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your campsite and rest areas for trash or spilled foods. Pack out all trash, leftover food and litter.
  • Deposit solid human waste in catholes dug six (6) to eight (8) inches deep at least 200 feet (60 meters) from water, camp and trails. Cover and disguise the cathole when finished.
  • Pack out toilet paper and hygiene products.
  • To wash yourself or your dishes, carry water 200 feet (60 meters) away from streams or lakes and use small amounts of biodegradable soap. Scatter strained dishwater.

 

Additional details by Mister LNT (For Philippine context)

 

  • There is no such thing as group trash. Each must have his/her own trash bag.
  • To-go mantra: clean as you go. Example, when cooking, have a garbage bag by your side and immediately shoot the trash you generate into the bag. Also, after eating immediately clean your utensils and dispose of leftover food.
  • Candy wrappers may be small but they become an eyesore when they litter the trails. Do not throw your candy wrappers on and along the trails. Maliit na basusra ibulsa mo.
