The Composting Toilet

(Use your browser's "Back" button to return)

We find that a composting toilet is the most portable and eco-friendly way to deal with waste in a remote location.

It is completely chemical free and uses the Swedish "Separett Privy" system. Because liquids and solids are kept separate and are well ventilated, odours soon dissappear - making this a much more pleasant experience. (... than the dreaded festival toilet!)

Using the toilet is simple ... a composting toilet uses no water so there is no flush - all you have to do is sprinkle a handfull of sawdust/woodchips after you've been and shut the lid. 

Any gents (and adventurous ladies!) in your party may be happy to also use what we call our "wee with a view" - a simple screen set up against the stone wall away from the camp.
