Draining washing machine outside

Hi, I am wondering what i need to do to drain my washing machine outside instead of down the septic? It is in the basement and will need to go into the joist space and outside. my ceilings are low (6.5 ft) and drain will go about 10 feet horizontally to get to outside wall. I also live in the northern part of Wisconsin where it freezes most of the year, lol, so is there a problem with freezing in the drain? any help of any kind would be appreciated. thanks, Frank

First call your building department and find out if this is legal where you live. It's illegal most places.
