I am constructing an outside composting toilet. I understand the importance of keeping poo’s as dry as possible so have designed a 2 seat system, 1 for poo’s the other for pee. The challenge is keeping pee out of poos when preforming number 2’s. So i need a pee separator…can you tell me please where i can purchase this essential device.
What workshops are often held?
Hi there. Might you be doing any workshops in the Wellington area any time? I have a Bambooloo but have not really been utilizing it properly re composting technique. Very keen to learn. Ngā mihi, Sarah
in your pdf download it speaks of a family of 3 or 4 filling a compost bin (wheelie bin type) in about 2 to 3 months.
So, every say 3 months on efills a bin which has to then stand for a year or two.
This means that the available ground will be filling uo with bins at a much quicker rate than they mature. This isn’t sustainable unless one lives on a farm.
Also, the cost of this number of bins would be prohibitive.
What is the solution to these issues, please? Have I misunderstood the process?
Thank you, this information is most helpful.
Do you have printable instructions for the steps to make the humanuare safe to use in the garden/yard?
Hi Greg and Lisa,
This is regarding your web page:
In it you provide a very polished pdf file of the instruction manual for a bucket composting toilet. You also mention you are making it available under a creative commons agreement.
I am wondering if I could get the source for this to prepare my own version of a manual for a system I am developing in our ecovillage community? I would of course credit your efforts and my version would also be available as part of the creative commons, including my plans for a system that meets the 2015 International Building Code. We have developed a composting system for which we intend to apply for a building permit under this code in Portland, Oregon, USA, where we are located. This is a very exciting development as, to my knowledge, the bucket toilet system has never received such official approval.
I would be happy to share details of this if you are interested. I am working with a local group called Recode (Oregon) focused on ecosanitation improvements that was instrumental in getting this groundbreaking code approved for such a wide jurisdiction.
Thank you for your consideration.
I am trying to get in contact with James Bellamy from Whangarei. Can you help???

Here in Portland, Oregon PHLUSH continues to be inspired by and build upon your efforts. Hazard assessments say repair of sewer systems after an M8.5 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake will take between 6 to 36 months depending on location. So there is interest in your work and our adaption of the Twin Bucket Emergency Toilet in other west coast cities, particularly Seattle. http://www.phlush.org/2012/11/18/world-toilet-day-2012-considering-life-with-no-toilets-in-the-united-states/
Thanks for your help. A special hello to James Bellamy.
