Default what to do with waste bucket from spray clean up?

After spraying, and cleaning up and running water through the system, how do you guys dispose of the waste bucket? Since it is mainly just water just dump it?

While I'm not a spray man yet, I'm gonna assume guys dump it. Pretty much the same thing as guys washing out their brushes in a utility sink I would assume. We don't exactly have the most environmentally friendly trade, but I'm really not sure some things can be avoided.

I always laugh when the gov't jumps in and tells the paint industry to move away from making oil-based paints because of the harmful VOC's and the solvents used to clean paint from brushes, rollers, etc. yet today's latex paints contain just as many harmful ingredients that we wash down the drain and into a wastewater treatment plant that eventually dispels a "cleaned up" version into rivers, streams, etc.

I use my wash waters on my grass. It does not seem to hurt the grass. (Does that make me a bad person? )

Preferably in the lawn, if it's not close to a river. Toilet is second choice. I also stopped washing roller sleeves. Now I dry them in the sun and toss them..
