Isn’t it just easier to poop in the hallway of your apartment complex?

Or, if you are one of Obama’s people, just go sh*t in somebody else’s hallway or alley and let them deal with it. < / sarcasm >

Humanure - if you can't flush it, what can you do with it?

Humanure can be mulched. The secret is to have a lot of greens. The additional greens will get hot enough to burn off anything.
Dead animals were mulched this way for generations.

There are numerous ways to build a composting toilet on the net. We have emergency 5 gal buckets handy, and even a toilet seat that's designed to sit on top of a 5 gallon bucket. We put up a tall emergency mulch bin away from the house for this type of mulching just in case.

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

If you have no need to go outside of your apartment, then yes, NMP or NYP (not my or your problem).

Be prepared to barricade inside for who knows how long then.

“If we’re still having elections in 2016, one of his thugs will be running for office.”

Sad - but I think most of us feel this way - we’ve just had our last free election.

250 years - we had a great run - too bad the lazy thinkers had to trash mankind’s best hope.

Saw the thread title and had to click on it to see if it was about disposing of inner city types that might come looking for your food and stuff.

We used rocket pods half burried in the dirt in RVN as urinals, but maybe PVC pipe might be more available here. The old slit trench worked fine for the sit down stuff.

Luckily, we are in an area of the Big Island where cesspools were the norm for decades. Nice porous lava.

Of course, the do-gooders have changed that for new construction to sewer hookups (very rare) or septic tanks. Thankfully we are cesspool, so if we can find enough water to flush...........

HUMANURE composting toilets. The best way to cleanly dispose of poop. It’s online, I’ve seen it work on a small city lot, used it myself out in the country, it WORKS. Just need buckets and some composting materials - dirt, leaf mould, chipper shredded stuff, sawdust (raw wood, not kiln dried lumber, microbes aren’t there).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanure

Trench latrines and cat holes work well, used ‘em both for long periods of time, it composts fast when done properly.

I just posted the link to Humanure online.

I’ve used that kind of toilet and it works very well. No smell.

A few pointers that help things out in some situations.

The US Army came up with a neat technique to dispose of most urine apart from feces. Just get a long section of 5” diameter PVC pipe and bury it in the ground at an angle so that one end is waist high. By keeping most of the urine and feces separate, you significantly reduce the volume needed for a sealed waste container.

Quicklime (calcium oxide) is superb stuff for sanitation, both for feces and human remains. It strongly helps decomposition and kills lots of germs while reducing odor. Keeps down insects as well.

For the people in concrete cities like New York, if you forget these proper ways to deal with waste, or fail to prepare, then at least remember this better than nothing, compromise.

Use the ubiquitous plastic grocery bags from the supermarkets, put them over a five gallon bucket, or over a little waste basket from the bathroom or bedroom, or a big cooking pot, use it, tie it shut and pitch it into a garbage bag until that is full, then seal that.

A couple of weeks of that will stink to all get out, but at least it is separate from your environment, and can be disposed of when garbage service is returned.

Reminds me of the old book sold in outdoors stores. "How to sh!t in the woods"

Actually, it's good advice. I didn't think about the flies and animals. The water I part I did, but that's obvious.

A catapult works well for that. For future reference, take note of the 0bama campaign signs in your neighborhood and use google maps to compute the range and bearing.

Maybe I should build some trench latrines near my property lines. After they’re filled up and covered with brush, they would make a good booby trap.
While we’re on the subject, will there be any posts on booby traps and defenses?

Urine is very high in nitrogen (i.e. "green").

I know I've said this before, but just in case anybody missed it, with a bit of practice you can use a plastic refillable spray bottle full of water as a bidet, drastically cutting down on the amount of TP needed.

(Also good for anyone who has trouble with hemorrhoids.)

It is amazing that these 'three day dufeses' had no idea that the water heater has gallons of waterf or flushing or boiling. And I shudder to think what happened to the poor souls int he ground floor apartments!

The very first thing I think of when the possibility of power outages arrives is to fill the bathtubs and use a plastic bag to seal the drain plug so the water doesn't seap out. BTW, it takes less than a gallon of water to flush the toilet by pouring fast into the bowl, then slowly pour another pint into the flushed bowl, to leave water sealign the gass from coming into the house via the toilet pipes. When I've had to do this before, I always leave the tank full and flush via direct pour.

Funny that this came up. We have a 40 foot sailboat with a holding tank. I hate that thing. I have actually been looking at a couple of different compost toilets for the boat. The Natures head and the c-Head.

“cesspools... that is old school..”

My aunt’s homne in Carlsbad CA is on cesspools, and it’s a 3/4 million dollar home in the city limits.

The only sewer line on the street is a high pressure line going to the sewage treatment facility.

The ground won’t take a perk test and therefore can’t put in leach lines.

Mebbe we be talking about two different things. The Hawaii cesspool is a concrete vault buried well down. No one gets into it without major excavation. Never know it is there or where it is.

You thinking of something else?
