Rota-Loo the convenience for the 21st century

One group of allotment holders chose to install a composting loo without the need for water, septic tank or mains drainage.

When a group of allotment holders were faced with the problem of providing toilets for its 300 plus members and numerous other community users, it decided to solve it using an environmental solution which is new to the UK.

Catriona Andrews from the Herne Hill allotments states that : “Our allotments have been in existence since 1914 and have managed without toilets for many years. We have many hundreds of people who make use of the allotments including plot holders, school and community groups from a wide age, gender and ethnic mix. Although we do have running water for watering and hand washing, the cost of installing flush toilets was in excess of £10,000 so the Rota-Loo composting toilet was the most appropriate solution for us.

“Looking after the environment is obviously important to a place like an allotment and after some education to ensure people know how to use it we believe that it will be the answer to our problem.”

Jonathan Cooke from Rota-Loo UK says, “The key advantage of Rota-Loo is that it is very competitive in cost compared to the installation of traditional drainage systems . Rota-Loo has very low maintenance and operating costs . Rota-Loo provides a very useful compost for replenishing the soil and its structure. People who want to avoid wasting precious water and do not want to pollute their ground water or who simply do not have access to the mains water and drainage systems should consider Rota-Loo as the ecological answer to perennial “problem of human waste” by turning it into valuable compost .

The Rota-Loo system has a 12V fan which ensures constant ventilation of the store providing aerobic decomposition thus preventing any smells. The store consists of a turn table with six bins which are rotated sequentially once each is filled; when the bins are full they compost down to produce humus which can be used as compost.

“I see this as an excellent asset for many rural locations including campsites, SSI’s, nature reserves and national parks , outdoor clubs, outdoor activity and education centres and of course domestic low carbon and green housing both in the UK and in Europe. ”
