Any good sources on obtaining buckets, other than the obvious of buying them from Home Depot or the like. I really liked the idea Joe had to obtain some that would be otherwise thrown away. I live in Albuquerque, NM, so any ideas locally or globally (i.e. where others got their buckets not in Albuquerque) would be appreciated

Restaurants, cafeterias, bakeries, sheetrockers, canneries, janitors, printers, for a start. Get several for back-up. We have several humanure harvesters to accomodate guests. No standing in line necessary.

I got some buckets from a bakery and am almost done making my saw-dust toilet. I am doing a 2-container system, one for the cover material and one for the humanure. I should be done today, I ran out of day light yesterday.

I finished it! It is in use. Furniture builder I am not! Measure once and cut 4 times? right? and then one more cut for good measure?

Questions? My bucket seems to be filling rapidly. I am using mulched leaves and I am assuming that maybe they are just more bulky than sawdust and so it fills faster? But, here is the main question, do you use enough cover material to totally cover the toilet paper and if so, how do you keep it from piling up in the middle?

The good news is that it does not smell at all bad. There is a slight odor of the linseed oil on the box and of the leaves, but it is pleasant, not offensive. I did believe you that it did not smell, but I just wanted to pass it on to anyone else who has doubts.

You don't have to totally cover the toilet paper. You just have to cover the contents until there is no odor.
