I’ve improved the design of a composting toilet. This is now very simple and low cost. You can make one in an hour.

There are only 4 items you need. You already have the toilet seat. It’s on your toilet. I used a power drill and a jig-saw to cut the hole on the plywood. I cut the lino with a craft knife.


Where to empty your composting toilet.

I prefer to empty it often so it is not too heavy. I have a car-tyre compost heap within a few meters of the toilet so I don’t have to carry the bucket far. Easy light loads regularly.

Make a car-tyre compost heap to empty your humanure bin.
