Understanding Batch Composting Toilets: A Simple Guide for Beginners

At Waterless Toilet Shop, we often get questions about the different types of composting techniques, especially when it comes to composting toilets. This article will shed light on batch composting and why it might be the right choice for your waterless toilet needs.

Two Main Types of Composting: Continuous and Batch

When it comes to composting, whether for kitchen bio waste or toilet waste, there are two primary techniques: continuous composting and batch composting.

In continuous composting, a single large fixed-in-place composting container is used. New waste is added from one end or the top, while ready compost mulch is taken out from the other end, typically by shoveling. The container is designed to be large enough so that the waste has ample time to decompose as it moves to the bottom or outlet latch. For more information on continuous composting toilets, please review our CF 4 and CF 8 waterless toilet models.

Batch composting, on the other hand, uses two or more interchangeable containers. When one container is actively used in the toilet, the other is left to rest and decompose. This method allows the waste to fully decompose into usable compost before it is handled.

The Benefits of Batch Composting

Given the nature of toilet waste, many people prefer not to handle raw waste. This is where batch composting shines. When the active compost unit is full, it is removed, covered with a closed lid, and left to decompose into ready mulch while the other container is put into use. By the time it’s necessary to switch containers again, the older one can be safely emptied and used in the garden.

Easy Maintenance

One of the major advantages of batch composting is its ease of maintenance. Servicing the containers of a waterless toilet is a quick and straightforward process that doesn’t require any tools, machinery, or significant strength. It can be done in minutes, ensuring the toilet is not out of use for long.

Flexible Capacity

Batch composting also offers flexible and practically endless capacity. If you suddenly have more users for the toilet, you can easily extend the system’s capacity by adding more spare containers. Also, if you are unsure of the capacity needed for your toilet, a batch composting may be a better choice.
