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. We will check the toilet everyday and empty it if neccessary.

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.
