Wayne~ 4-5 gal of pulp per week sounds like a lot of carrot juice for one family, but that's a great source of compost/toilet material. For the toilet, you can spread it out to dry before using it- somewhat like sawdust.

For the compost bin, I've used it as a green ingredient mixed with a dry ingredients for decomposition and in the winter when running short on dry materials (that happens in the city), I've let it dry out same as grass clippings- another good source of both green and/or dry material.

My sister & family (next door) is on a carrot juice regime. I'm getting about 4 or 5 gallons of carrot pulp per week--maybe more. I'm wondering, on average, if that is any better or worse (for both the process and the finished product) than all the other stuff I'm composting? (i.e. humanure, kitchen compost, hay & grass clippings) Assuming I continue to use this pulp, it looks like I'll be starting a third compost bin sooner than expected...
