Spanish term or phrase: presa de desperdicios
This is an oil field term for a pit or hole for trash, wastes, etc. I would like to know if someone knows the exact term in English. Thanks.

waste holding pond, pit, lagoon or waste holding tank
Explanation:
I'd go with "wasteholding pond" --this is the term that crops up the most along with oil. Lagoons seem to hold animal waste. Pits are smaller than ponds, and, like lagoons, only appear in the context of animal wastes.

If it is an above-ground, *container*, it would be a waste holding *tank*
