Role description & responsibilities at bottom of page

will be updated as needed

current situation summarized

  • in 2021💩 Freiland installed 10 compost toilets, mostly in groups of 3. They came with 2 urinals each on one side and a hand washing station on the other. They are self built and can be moved.

  • word is that Freiland upped their number and can provide us will all toilets? TBC by @Veroca R. Sala or site liaison


  • TBD


  • If still required, book eco-toilet provider ideally 2-3 months before the event

  • Set clear guidelines on what freiland covers and what we do (cost and operations, what if something breaks during the event)

  • Check with the site team that our sanitary units match the Amt requirements

  • ensure 2 IBC containers are next to each toilet cluster

  • Book grey / black water (toilet waste on site in IBCs and septic tank) company (GKU Entsorger) 6 weeks before the event

    • 2x collection (we did Friday, Monday) was necessary

How do the Freiland toilets work?

The solid waste goes into a big regular wheelie rubbish bin that is exchanged when full. The liquid waste flows through pipes from the urinal and the bottom of the wheelie bin into a barrel that is located lower in the ground (gravity). the barrel has a pump at the bottom to pump out the fluid into a big 1000L IBC container. If there is an empty adjacent container, you switch over the connection and that is it in terms of "rear" grey water maintenance
