Dear Managing Human Waste Google Group

I'd like to update you on the progress of Toilet Tech Solutions (TTS) in the last year.

Business Summary

Main Offerings
  • Mechanical urine diverting toilet seats imported from, adapted to high use public sites in North and South America (over 50 units imported to date).
  • Complete prefabricated toilet kits for front and back country, offered independently or with complete waste management solutions (Decompose & Waste Away).
  • Custom design solutions, Wilderness Act compliance, engineering and permitting support.
  • Waste management services   
    • yes, we will do everything with the solid waste, except stock toilet paper in some areas

New 2017 Products
TTS co-developed a toilet structure with Wishbone Site Furnishings, integrating a TTS-BTW urine diverting conveyor belt seat with their aluminum framed / recycled plastic T&G walled toilet structure.  The first unit was installed in 2016 with the USDA Forest Service at Baker Lake, WA.  Photos are attached here.

Check out the Wishbone John Toilet here.  It is a sophisticated toilet product known for its rapid assembly (1 hour) and very low O&M (no paint, no rot, no rust).

Our Website
We revamped it in 2016 and updated it with new products, projects, photos, and a blog.
