So if you dig a pit about will say 3 feet deep. what do you think happens to the waste after you put dirt on it?
Asking for a friend...
Depends on the soil where you dig the pit. Some places the soil "percolates" quite well and when you put the waste into the pit all liquid disappears into the depths in little time. Only thing the dirt is covering is whatever solids remain behind and they are usually a small percentage of the total waste..
Now if you are on dense soils, like clay and rock, chances are you won't dig a 3' deep pit as it will be an all day task
