Last month the Yarra Link Project had a composting toilet installed at our site in Heyington. The toilet was provided to us by Andy Tannahill and the good folk at Composting Toilet Systems. A composting toilet is one of those things that does what it says on the can (it’s good to get that pun out of the way early). Composting Toilet Systems’ facilities use zero water and turn waste materials into usable compost and phosphorus. Andy started on this track while working with festival Portaloos and began figuring out more sustainable methods of dealing with waste and reducing transport costs. Composting Toilet Systems are working to transform culture by making composting toilets a norm and for people to see the benefits of composting. Having one of Composting Toilet Systems’ toilets at the Heyington site is a big deal for us because we can now have people come down and use the parcel of land for activities and group gatherings. This and the fact that a composting toilet is a sustainable waste management system makes it perfect for our needs.
If you’d like to come down to the Yarra Link Project’s site and use it for an activity, as well as use our awesome new composting toilet, you can get in touch with us here:

This is great! I’d love to see more and more composting toilets in urban areas. And it is a possibility with the myths being busted. In fact, we published one of those myth busting articles. Please see the link by clicking my name.
Thanks for the comment. We love the idea of composting toilets. In fact, I personally have seen quite a few around the world. Most notably was one at the http://www.panyaproject.org/
