Waterless, odorless, and adaptable to anywhere we go

It all starts with the toilet, a urine diversion toilet

Do you have a human waste problem you’re not sure how to manage?

Wasted*Offgrid has you covered. Our toilet requires no behavior change, and requires no water, no electricity, and no chemicals. The *Offgrid toilet prevents all odors, noises, and hides any waste left behind by a previous user.

The design makes it impossible to drop objects (keys, phones, etc.) and users can either stand or sit to pee.

This is the most robust urine diversion toilet on the market — we know, we’ve tried all of them.

Natural Waste Management

Here’s how it works:

  1. While in use, urine drains off the front of the conveyor belt and is plumbed from the toilet to a urine dispersion field, where nutrients are absorbed by local flora.

     

  2. After a user finishes their business, activating the foot pedal transports the solid waste and toilet paper along the conveyor belt. From there, waste is deposited into a decomposition chamber where invertebrate and soil microorganisms decompose the waste into organic matter.*


*We offer an alternative solid waste containment system that accommodates the need to remove solid waste from the site.

FAQs

A urine diversion toilet system is a sanitation solution that separates urine from solid waste at the source. It’s designed for remote settings where traditional sewer connections are not feasible.

Pit toilets – those smelly holes in the ground that you find in backcountry settings – are in violation of the 2005 Clean Water Act. The *Offgrid sanitation system has been recognized as the most robust and effective alternative to replace pit toilets across North America.

Regular maintenance involves checking composting levels, ensuring proper ventilation, and monitoring urine collection systems. The frequency depends on usage but typically ranges from monthly to quarterly.
