Composting toilet?

Its my understanding that composting toilet dont work once the temp drops below 55. With occasional weekend use after hunting season through the winter is there any issues with it not working properly?

When the temps drop its just a holding tank until Spring time. I have a SunMar NE. Just dump and pee and forget about it. Dont try to rotate the drum until the temps warm up next April. Other that than, all is good.

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.

That's true, won't compost under 55*. We use our Nature's Head, stir it, empty the pee bottle. It's fine. If you have to empty the compost bin when it's been used and cold for some time though it's not so fresh smelling. I try to make sure it's emptied at the middle or end of archery so it's good to go through rifle season.

We had one at our camp and we ended up getting rid of it and went with an Incinolet unit instead. They’re more expensive initially but burn off the solid waste to disposable ashes, a much better and user friendly unit.
