Yes, but that's not funny.

Why even think about it? After Discovery and especially Picard it's bloody obvious that the people in charge of this new era of "Star Trek" have never watched an episode of Star Trek or understand a single bloody thing about it! Picard was Star Wars in everything but name, heck it felt more Star Wars-y than the ******* Mandalorian!

Star Wars ships have waste disposal, there, solved it!

Holodecks use transporter technology matter created from energy, so when the system is shut off you would assume that any "man" matter remaining would be converted into energy.

Holodecks have a bit of a plot hole, there is an epsiode where wesley exits the holodeck soaking wet, the water should have dissapeared leaving him dry. Dr Pulaski eats a belly full of crumpets but what happens when you leave? Is the food the holodeck produces the same and real as replicator food? filling your stomach for it to suddenly be empty can't be good for you.

Last the holodeck is a set size. if two people enter a simulation of a large field. If both walk in the same direction they would reach the end of it. BUT if one person stays by the door how does the other person get the effect of walking to the other end of a large field if their mate is not moving and what does the other guy see while this is going on his mate would not disappear into the distance. The problem is multiplied when more people enter; all going in different directions. Far better would be a matrix style approach where you go to a room and plug in and your brain is tricked into thinking its real.

Anyway I never liked the holodeck or the replicators.

Safety protocols, if all power is lost then the system to remove any "man paste" would also be broken.

Then its down to the poor sod with a rag and a darklight
