The New River and waste

One of our customers, Jo Homan, recently wrote a great piece on the Transition Network website, talking about one of our great local landmarks and what it tells us about our attitude to waste. https://www.transitionnetwork.org/stories/jo-homan/2012-06/waste-not
It describes how the New River was constructed 400 years ago to deal with a problem that we still haven’t solved today and talks about some of the alternatives.
The only thing I’d like to add (and you’ll have to read Jo’s article to find out why) is that compost toilets don’t take that much room: Probably a space the size of a broom cupboard in the average house.  For a description of how compost toilets work you can see this entry in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compost#.22Humanure.22
And yes, you can expect to see them installed at The Castle sometime in the next two years.  Watch this space……
