Thanks for the reply Joe. I pretty much figured out that would be the best way. Thanks for the confirmation.

Dump the sawdust in a pile outside and let rain work on it, assuming you get rain where you are.

Hi folks,

I have only just bought this amazing book and am in the process of building my own toilet system. My question is this. I have access to large amounts of sawdust which is packaged in the form of animal bedding. Now, this sawdust is very dry so should I be rotting the sawdust myself? And also, what is the best way to do this. Is it as simple as putting the sawdust in a large bucket and wetting it or leaving it outside to let the rain do the work? I hope that you good people can help. If this sawdust is no good then will grass mowings be okay to use as a cover material?

Many thanks

Mark
