How do people actually dispose of acrylic paint water?

I think the Internet is full of lies when it comes to advice on how to dispose of old paint water.
I have been painting more (mostly acrylics) and every session I toss out about a half gallon or more of dirty water that my brushes have been washed in. This is bad for both my sink and the water supply! I googled and the advice I saw most often was to dump the dirty water into a bucket and let the water evaporate so that the paint is left behind.
I have been attempting this, in Texas, in the summer. I don't think the pace at which it evaporates is enough for this to be a realistic solution. Are people actually doing this? If not, how are people really disposing of their old paint water?
