Abstract:

A low-cost, disposable latrine system was developed as a substitute for honey-bucket, pit and burnout type latrines. This system, weighing approximately 125 pounds, consists of a 4 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft fiberglass box and lid with plastic piping. It is field assembled without special tools and requires only the digging of a trench and the fabrication of a latrine box for its emplacement. The unit is available in the supply system as FSN 4540-762-9450.
