@GracieGirl,
It is like a out house. Everything ends up in a large container, which is emptied in hoboken nj or nearest airport.
In case you loose some jewelry or your moneybelt - it will all be searched.

Every so often, someone will flush false teeth or jewelry in the toilet,`` says John Lanier, Delta superintendent of operations services.

Several times a month an employee will have to use a strainer to go through everything flushed during a flight, Lanier said.

There's a big tank below the potty that holds it all til it gets to the airport. You can sometimes see it sloshing around down there. Same on buses and trains (the old trains used to just be open to the tracks, you could pee and it would stretch out over several miles. Look down and you could see the cross ties on the rails going by. We have made a certain amount of progress since then.

@GracieGirl,
When a plane is going by, NEVER look up! (I just could not resist that!) Laughing

Good advice, Phoenix

Blue ice in the context of aviation is the frozen sewage material dispensed mid-flight from commercial aircraft lavatory waste tanks, a biowaste mixture of human waste and liquid disinfectant that freezes at high altitude. The name comes from the blue color of the disinfectant. Airlines are not allowed to dump their waste tanks in mid-flight, and pilots have no mechanism by which to do so; however, leaks can occur.

Danger of ground impactThere were at least 27 documented incidents of blue ice impacts in the United States between 1979 and 2003.[1] These incidents typically happen under airport landing paths as the mass warms sufficiently to detach from the plane during its descent. A rare incident of falling blue ice causing damage to the roof of a home was reported on October 20, 2006 in Chino, California.[2] A similar incident was reported in Leicester, UK, in 2007.[3]

In 1971, a chunk of ice from an aircraft tore a large hole in the roof of the Essex Street Chapel in Kensington, London, and was one trigger for the demolition of the building.[4] In November 2011 a chunk of ice, the size of an orange, broke through the roof of a private house in Ratingen-Hösel, Germany.

@MontereyJack,
I saw a guy pull chunks of one of those leaks that came through his roof, out of his freezer with his bare fingers on television, and the reporter was not even decent enough to suggest he put it in a plastice bag, or suggest he was handling human waste... What would you do if a **** meteor came through your roof some day, I mean, besides calling the insurance company... Tell the cops who can't find their way past a donut shop to follow that jet???You know that ain't going to happen...

I'm never flying on one of your planes. Are you sure they weren't gliders you were on?, or hot air balloons. But even they have stuff on them. ?? The mind boggles.

The CIA & NASA have developed a evac-system for the airlines. They basically create a vortex directly under the planes toilet.
Sucks up all human waste; Ho-bo's, urine, homeless people, drug addicts, faeces and Republicans.
Where it all goes, nobody knows. Some say Washington others say the Moon.
