I think almost all human waste would need to be recycled -- especially for the purpose of reclaiming the water from human waste to be reused, such as
for drinking water.
Water is one of the heaviest things a manned spaceship needs to carry, and it would be essential for a Mars mission to not waste any of it. They can
do this by keeping the water in a closed system (use, recycle, reuse, repeat cycle).
