Black Water Dump

I am currently having a pole building erected with bathroom and septic system. I would like to install a dump on the outside of the building. Does anyone have any plans? Should there be just a vertical 4" pvc pipe connected so that it flows into septic tank? I presume this would not hve a j-trap in it, thus would require an airtight cap.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Dump Spot

We dug up and cut out a section of the sewer line and put in a Y with a threaded cap sticking slightly up out of the ground, visible yet below the mowers blade. Just be sure to use the correct connectors for the pipe materials. We have plastic pipe, very easy to work with.
Have plenty of wiping cloths to wipe it clean and wash up the poo goo.
I think it cost less than $30. plus a few hours time to fetch materials, dig, piece together and glue.
