Q: What is a dry composting toilet?

A: A dry composting toilet, is a waterless toilet system that separates the excreta. With the aid of a separating insert or separator, liquid is separated from solid waste and collected in a separate container. Urine is fed into a container at the front, while faeces and toilet paper end up in a solids container in the rear area, where they are covered with litter after each toilet visit. This removes liquids from solid matter and at the same time prevents formation of unpleasant odours. We then compost the faeces and store the urine for a time until they can be used as compost and fertiliser.

A: No, not without prior consent from us in advance of your stay and you must be amenable to the resulting surcharge.
