Day 12

Waste Disposal

Come to think of it this is a fairly shitty topic… LOL! Sorry! I couldn’t resist.
When you think of it though what are you going to do with the trash and your waste? Since I won’t be out purchasing stuff, my trash will be none existent. What is left that would have been tossed will just have to be saved to burn or be creative with

Now for the human waste. Wendy Brown talks about having two buckets one for liquid and one for solids. The liquid would need to be diluted with water and then you can water trees and shrubs. The solids she recommends a book about Humanure. I would recommend this as I know I don’t have room for an outhouse, and I can’t access septic system. We are on the city lines. So this seems like it is the best for us. I need to check into it more though.

Need to Do or Get
  1. Look into Humanure
  2. Get a 5 gallon bucket with a toilet seat on it.
  3. Get a metal garbage can ( for controlled burn )
  4. Make sure post hole digger is in good shape ( in case we did have to dig an outhouse )
  5. Look into blocking off drains in basement… backup could be a problem
