I call BS (pun intended).

My response to your earlier comment was this:

The taxpayers pay twice and nothing gets improved.

Why not make them use the fine $$ to make improvements?

Simply referring to composting toilets when actually discussing municipal sewage treatment systems appears disingenuous.

And I rather doubt homeowners would swap what they have for composters.

I think a more rational, but also costly, system would be to use recycled water for flushing toilets instead of wasting fresh clean drinking water.

In indonesia they just got rid of the cruising permit. Indonesia has a large population. So explain that?


The laws don't have to become more restrictive with more population, it could be the opposite.

What you really mean is:

more overpoulated world, more restrictive laws can be introduced.

Old trick used in india and china millenias ago to enslave population

You are right of course. And there is no way we would ever go back to the days of collecting 'night soil'.

Rainwater collection for flushing toilets makes sense in many places but, again, how many homeowners will pay extra $ to have a cistern installed?

Humanure
Remember the North Korean soldier who defected recently, was found to be infected with many strains of intestinal parasites.

Re: Loonies Got Their Way

How does one dispose the accumulated material in a composting toilet? Dump it in the water? What about the urine? How does it turn into compost?

Don't think you'd have to look very hard to find folks in your country with similar infections.

We have an Air Head that is designed to separate the liquids from the solids, so the liquids do NOT compost. The point is to keep the composting medium dry. And no, just like emptying your holding tank, dumping your composting contents overboard is not legal unless you are more than 3 miles offshore. Depending on where we are, we use that option, or we double bag it and dispose of it in a responsible dumpster (i.e. not a private one). Sometimes, if we're on a deserted island, we empty it under a tree. It is "gone" in a few days. Bugs and critters finish the "composting" rather quickly. But of course, you can't do this in the States or in a neighborhood or something. I think the best rule of thumb is to be reasonable about where you put it.
