Hi, thanks for the advise. I think if I had larger receptacles like you said the people who run the program would be OK with it. I can't make the investment of time and money to go with your solar toilet. I'm looking for a fairly simple solution. I'll look through the hand book and see if I can find anything.
thanks again

Why the opposition to emptying buckets? If there is a convenient set-up as described in The Humanure Handbook emptying buckets is not a big deal.
There are several designs with larger receptacles such as wheelie bins, cannery totes, or double vault containers built from concrete blocks. One example is my design for a passive solar composting privy: www.solartoilet.com
Good luck with your project.

Hello composting experts,
I am new to the world of composting toilets and am seeking advice in building or buying my fist one. I have a yurt which is soon to be an outdoor education center, and is in need of toilet. The capacity will be 12 people for 3 hours two times a week. My plan so far is to build an out house style building and put a composting toilet inside. The couple running the education program does not want a high maintenance facility (they weren’t interested in emptying buckets unless only once every couple months). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks Nathaniel
