I don't really have a port potty recommendation or preference -- but we have discussed getting one of these for our potty/shower tent. You can never have too much class
It's 6volt and runs off AAA batteries.
Here is the link for the Anywhere Crystal Pendant

In our neck of the woods, they go in the Green Bin along with kitchen waste for composting which gets picked up with our Blue Bin recyling materials.

I think that is fantastic! This is the first time I have heard of this. I am assuming the disposable diapers must be compost-friendly diapers for this service? As far as I know, we don't have this in the US.

I am really bothered by throwing away disposable diapers. We use cloth with our babies.

Oh you must somewhere in the US. That is where our multi coloured bins come from. You can see what we do here in the big city www.toronto.ca/garbage , Just use the navigation bar on the left side to understand the various programs. I am reluctant to say we are very poor when it comes to the plastics. I believe it is cheaper to send to a landfill than recycle. Almost everything else they recycle has residual value on sales.

hi...just a little note--my local recycling facility has won multiple awards for its innovative ideas. we simply divide our garbage into either a wet (green) plastic bag or a dry (blue) one. they do all the sorting at the facility. it works amazingly well. diapers and all sanitary products are included in the wet system.

Mayor Bloomberg of New York City wants to get rid of the LARGE Big Gulp size soft drink cups so if that happens there will be a GLUT of BIG CUPS on the market that may be used as one time porta potties. I know this because Jon Stewart said on his show that the homeless use them.

I do not want to deal with cleaning a port a potti thank you. So I purchased the Luggable Loo Toilet seat from Capital Iron in Victoria BC. I then got a smaller bucket- 3 gallon from a plastics store. (if you buy the Luggable Loo as a set with a 5 gallon bucket, the bucket is too high to fit in the bench) The toilet seat fits perfectly on my lower bucket. The bucket fits in one front bench of the Trillium and I still have room for other storage. It weighs nothing. It costs $14.00. It uses disposable gel bags that cost $12 for 6, found at Walmart, Canadian Tire, etc. You can order one here: Luggable Loo Bucket Lid Toilet Seat, Showers, Toilets, & Accessories, Camp Essentials, Camping : Cabela's

Lorraine, I've looked all over for a 3 Gal bucket with the same diameter as the 5 Gal. Home Depot, Lowes, ACE, even googled them online. Cant find one that the mouth isnt too small for the seat. Is the Plastics store you got yours at by any chance online so maybe I could order one?

Thanks!

Melissa

Thanks! I'll call them and see if the lid size is the same for the 3 gallon as the 5 gallon.

LOL, good one Darwin!

3 gallon bucket

Hello Melissa, Here is the link Pails Industrial Plastics and Paints. I got the Round pail, food grade, 20 litre bucket.

Here's a thought... The bucket is needed as a support for the toilet seat and a place for you to sit comfortably. The actual waste goes into the double bag system. So... you could cut the bottom off of a 5 gallon bucket to the correct height so it fits in your bench. The bucket would have not bottom but it doesn't really matter
