Compost Loo (Toilet) Hut

When we were faced with the problem of providing a toilet facility for our own off grid glamping site we decided to design and build our own. Roll on three years and we now have an excellent cost effective compost loo hut.

Not only is this a practical, chemical free, easy to maintain and environmentally friendly solution but the attractive design of the hut means it blends well with all surroundings.

The key to any successful compost loo is the separation of the solids and liquids and this is achieved by way of a urine separator positioned on runners under the loo seat.

A 69 litre bucket collects the solids and the plumbing diverts the urine to either a soakaway or another container outside the hut. This separation process allows the hut to remain odour free.

A handful of sawdust is thrown into the bucket after each use and this helps to provide the balance of carbon and nitrogen required for the decomposition process.

A hatch opening on the back of the hut provides easy access for the bucket to be emptied. We can also supply a composting box for this purpose.

The composting box has spaces between the timbers to allow air (oxygen) in which results in aerobic decomposition and a compost which can be used as a fertiliser.

There is another hatch opening under the loo seat base to allow easy access to the urine separator and plumbing for periodic cleaning.

  • compost loo in lancaster churchyard

    "Our eco-loo has gone down very well at St Mark's, especially as we have had quite a few spring/summer weddings. It fits in comfortably next to another shed already there. The urine just drains into the small bottle which can be emptied easily and regularly. 10 out of 10!"
