base - where the waste will go

The dry composting toilet is under construction! This toilet will be used during construction and then by the vocational section of the school. The solid and liquid waste are separated, both being used to nourish the adjacent gardens. The latrine will be odorless and non-polluting, while producing free organic fertilizer. Low-cost, and low-maintanance we are excited to put our new toilet to use soon!

Check out this diagram highlighting the dry composting toilet’s main design features. More pics to come . . .
