How far from home do you have to go to dump your tanks or can you dump them at home?

I can dump at our local Waste Water Treatment Plant, it's about a mile away.
The nearest dump station at a CG is about 20 miles away.

Dump at home in septic tank. Put a plastic manhole over clean out cover. Works great for final flushing of tank at end of season

There is a free dump at a gas station in town about 3 miles from home. Since I always fill up on the way home, it is very convenient.

Years ago I dumped at the same kind of place and it was only a couple of miles from home.

One of my friends build in a dump station when he build his new house a few years back.

I get to dump at home too.

Dump at home. I Extended the sewer cleanout many years ago to be close to the curb so it's easy.

About 10-15 miles, so we always dump and flush well before coming back home. Our home sewer connections are far away on the other side of the house, so there is no option.

The infrastructure to dump at home is sooo nice.
