The thought of putting it in a bag makes me gag.
I think the OPs reasons were environmental, not to do with the head's handling of the paper itself. It is kinda gross and I'm with you there, but in places like the Tobago Cays our friends follow that rule to avoid "littering" (as a French-sold boat there's no holding tank)
