After a year or so, we finally have a commissioned compost toilet, and it has successfully completed it second week.
|toilet gallery and greenhouse|
|as it was last year - some change eh ?|
|neat and tidy, (in need of paint )|
|covered in sawdust - and no smell|
I theory you can leave the emptying for a few days, and there is no smell, but we've decided to empty it every day, as part of the 'shutting up shop' routine, so it will be nice and clean for the start of each day.
This may sound like a chore, and not very pleasant, but so far it's been fine, not smelly, and worth it, as we know it's for the good of the garden.
|bucket, compost bin, and rain water to hand for rinsing out|
After a year or so we will have good fertile compost. Opinion is divided about whether it is safe to put the composton vegetables, so to be on the safe side, we will use it on the other parts of the garden. We have plenty of other compost for the veg plot.
|inside the compost bin, every so often we cover this with a layer of grass cuttings as odour control|
We are happy with our work, and so far the 'customer' reaction is good, with such comments as:
"Very light and airy"So, good beginnings, we'll keep you posted of our experiences
"Much nicer that a portaloo"
