Eco-loos have designed and produced a composting toilet which is ideal for use on allotment sites where it can be impractical and costly to connect to mains water or sewage. Designed originally for third-world countries where sewage systemjs in remote locations do not exist, these units have found a market in the western world for groups and individuals concerned about our planet and the vast quantities of waste we produce.
The toilet cubicle is constructed to high specifications from FSC sustainable timber. The workings of the toilet make it very easy to use and maintain. It does not require connection to either mains water or sewage outlets. It works completely independently of all mains systems and is therfore ideal for allotment sites.
These composting loos are know as 'urine separating composting toilets'. So everyone sits down to use them, boys and girls. This enables the separtation of liquid waste from soild waste. This stops all the nasty smells associated with compost loos and they really do work.
Its a simple design. Under the seat is a large 60ltr container, into which you sprinkle a large scoop of sawdust, then its ready to use. When the container is full, you simply remove the lid of the loo, lift out the container and replace with a new one. The full container is then put in a corner somewhere to allow it to decompose. After a period of time (6 months to a year) the compost as it is can be used on your garden.
You have two choices to dispose of the urine. You can either build a soakaway next to where the compost loo is going to be sited or you can have the outlet pipe going into a container. This way you can water the contents down - 8 parts water to 1 part urine - and use it on your compost heap to help speed up the decomposition of your ordinary garden waste. It also acts as a general fertiliser.
The timber cubicle measures 900mm wide x 1200mm deep x 2150mm high. They are delivered to you by pallet lorry, already errected and ready to use.

Timber cubicle made from quality FSC redwood tongue and groove timber, treated with an oil based preservative to the exterior.

YOU CAN KEEP GOING WHILE YOU KEEP GROWING
The spring has sprung and its time to get digging and planting all those wondrous varieties of fruit and veggies ready for the table, freezer, village shows and competitions. With the weather getting milder ladies, gentleman and children can roll up their sleeves and enjoy the most rewarding of pastimes. So, its time to stop disappearing behind that rhubarb leaf, though gentlemen still have the advantage there, and invest in an Ecotoilet. These are becoming very popular with Allotment Societies all over the country. A wooden cabin including a toilet can cost from as little as £1599.00 inclusive of VAT and a secure cabin from £2799.00. There have always been composting toilets.
