Well, uh porta potties for example. You can bring your own. If you've got a vehicle with a hitch you can tow a two-unit rental out of Reno for a relatively small fee. Outside of burning man "Self reliance" doesn't mean that coffee, ice, porta potties and a medical tent are provided for you.

There's also the always-popular 5 gallon bucket (get one with a lid!), complete with a big bag of kitty litter or sawdust. Layering is key.

The old solution might have been to dig a hole in the ground and fill it afterwards. Turns out to be rather frowned upon these days because of the dry conditions and the lack of decomposition.

(And of course some people just live out of an RV and bring their own plumbing.)

Yeah the toilet situation is the worst thing imo.
