That's my take as well, based on personal experience. I simply posted the link for reference.

I have had a small, but nicely equipped, home darkroom in the same location now for 24 years. It's on a septic system originally installed in 1978. Using standard black-and-white processing chemicals that all eventually go down the drain, I have never had a single issue in almost a quarter-century of light hobbyist-level usage.

I do suppose YMMV, but mine never has.
