Requirements on Waste Water Bucket/ Container

We are going on our first Rockwood A-Frame trip to Yosemite National Park. I was wondering if anyone knew, if it was required, to have a "special waste water container" at the National Park Campsites? If so, what do you recommend and where to purchase?
The private campsites we have stayed just required some type of "bucket" to collect the sink waste water.
Please let us know, thanks.

I believe the same holds true. It is unlawful to dispose of waste water directly onto the ground. Any type of containment, and proper disposal should be sufficient.

When DW and I went to Yellowstone in 09, we used the blue Aquatainer we got from Walmart, have used the blue jug for over 10 years.
Have a safe and good trip.

It isn't pretty, but I use a short waste garden hose attached to the cap (with a garden hose opening) & fill a 5 gallon heavy plastic bucket. I got a bunch of them from a home construction site (they were filled with joint compound). Just don't use that bucket for anything else unless it is for carrying fire wood kindling.

Arrow Waste Water Container

Thanks for all the quick replies. I purchased a water container from Walmart that is a six gallon hopefully the Nat'l. Park Service will be okay with it.
