A composting toilet treats human waste using biological processes, changing it into organic compost that can be used as soil fertiliser. It is in fact a complete waste processing system on a small scale. Bacteria and other macro and micro-organisms thrive in the aerobic conditions provided by a composting toilet, getting rid of harmful pathogens, removing the risk to human health and environment and converting the waste nutrients into fertile soil. Waste material is reduced to a small fraction of its original volume.
You can now see all 60 lots that are available to bid on in the next Boatbid auction starting July 15th 2016.
