TOILETS: PORTABLE OPTIONS

I was doing some browsing online and came across this on the TARGET store website and thought it should be shared.
This would be for those that aren't handy at do-it-yourself projects: (using a 5 gallon bakery, purchase toilet seat, & plastic bags).

Toilets: Portable Options

Popular outdoor destinations attract higher numbers of visitors, and receive more impact to the surrounding natural resources. This can lead to concentrations of human waste and other refuse, which pollutes the environment and presents a serious human health hazard. Left unchecked, these conditions may force land managers to restrict access, or implement user regulations designed to protect the natural resources and enhance public health and safety.

Public restroom facilities are not always available, especially in remote areas. Visitors to some public lands may be required by law to carry a portable toilet system for the removal of human waste. Portable toilets (also called “pack it out” toilets) are already familiar to many outdoor enthusiasts, including river rafters, sea kayakers, rock climbers, backpackers, and others. Any visitor to the public lands can help improve their favorite destinations by carrying and using a portable toilet system as a routine part of their outdoor activities.

Portable toilet systems are now available in a variety of designs, to accommodate a wide range of outdoor activities. With a little research and preparation, you will be able to select a toilet system that is right for your activity and group size. --- continued at link above ---

5 Gallon Bucket w/Lid

Easy to make, using any 5 gallon bucket that has a tight fitting lid. Purchase a toilet seat to put
on top of the bucket for more comfort.

Line the bucket with plastic bags and add some kitty litter, sawdust or cinders to the bottom of the bag for absorption.

Make sure you dispose of the filled bags AWAY from your living area in case any wild critters get into the bags.

Make sure you dispose of the filled bags away from your ground water supply.

Preferably disposing of bags in secure location until sanitation pickup is back in progress.

MORE Tips:

:arrow: by Alaska Rose @ American Preppers Network:

One little tip about having a bucket with lid for that time of need. Place the bucket in a milk crate or similar non-tipping container. A 5 gallon bucket is usually not the most stable seat in the house. For someone in a hurry or small kids, it is a good idea to stabilize the seating.
Instead of preserving the contents in plastic bags, why not use the buckets and have a prepared hole or outhouse for dumping the buckets and rinsing out with a bleach solution? This allows the contents to soak away and if you add a little yeast in the hole once in a while, it will digest everything away. We don't have a problem with much odor or flies, this way. Wearing latex gloves while handling the buckets for dumping and cleaning, then washing your hands very well afterwards should help keep disease down.

:arrow: by IceFire @ American Preppers Network:

One thing my husband did for the ladies in his unit while out on deployment to on old WWII "emplacement" in France, was to cut a hole in the seat of a camp stool to set over the "cat hole". (The "toilets" were literallyholes in the ground with indentations for proper foot placement.) They were VERY grateful, because there are just some...e.r."feminine tasks" that require a steady "seat" during execution.

Just 10 bucks plus shipping on ebay. I bought some a while back. I think having an outhouse will work fine OR you can dig a hole, dump some pee gravel sprinkle lime and dump your dump, then cover it back up again... I really can't believe I read 3 more pages of this.lol
