What is the best way to dispose of human waste when you are backpacking?

    Human waste is best left alone when out in nature backpacking. The excretory functions of the human body are no different than that of the other animals’ in nature. So, cover it with dirt like the animals do or simply leave it. As far as other types of waste, like garbage, that may accumulate while backpacking, designate a sealable bag for garbage and keep it in your backpack, then after the hike, throw away and recycle that kind of waste.

    Human waste should be left alone or you could bury it. It will decompose just like an animals waste. The waste will actually be used in a natural way, like nature intended it to be used.
