Handling waste

Off-grid waste management.
Disposing of human waste without wasting water is one concern
preppers have in dealing with waste management on the

Waste Management#1: Camping Toilet.

  • Option #1 Portable Toilet set: Pictured right in red, the
    portable toilet set includes the bucket and latrine seat
    complete with 5 liners, 5 chemical toilet packs with
    deodorizer, as well as toilet paper, gloves for sanitary
    changing and even hand sanitizer. They've thought of
    everything! Stock extra infectious waste bags.

    Option #2: Luggable Loo Portable Toilet: This five-gallon
    bucket, pictured right, is the most economically priced
    portable toilet. It's bucket style with a traditional snap-on,
    hinged seat and cover.  It's compatible with standard Double
    Doodie bag from Reliance Products, which means virtually no
    clean-up and waste disposal is a snap when used together.

    Option #3: Porta potty. The sturdy portable toilet, pictured
    right features a home-like design. It operates on batteries
    to flush, an integrates a toilet paper holder.

    Option #4: Composting Toilet: For an off-grid bugout
    location, consider a composting toilet.

    Option #5. Bidet. Not often on the list of other prepper Web
    sites, a bidet is an unusual prep. A bidet is a water bath for
    your genital and anal area. In the old days a bidet was
    common and was simply an oval basin. Today a bidet is
    often used for recovering from childbirth to keep the area
    clean. For a sanitizing effect, you'll need only small bottle
    with the appropriate hygienic water stream angle, such as
    Blue Bidet, pictured at the top right-hand corner of the page.
    Blue Bidet costs under $10 and could be one of the more
    important survival items in your arsenal.

    Option #6 Biffy bag.  With a Biffy bag, you tie the 2 straps
    around your waist, pull the bag up between your legs, bend
    knees slightly and let gravity do the rest, no bucket, no
    odor, no mess. You get a triple layer odor proof protection,
    with effervescent Biffy powder, which is bio-degradable. Biffy
    Bag comes with a heavy duty mylar zip top transport bag,
    ample toilet paper, and over size wet wipe. Great for your
    bugout vehicle, the Biffy Bag fits in your glove box, tackle
    box, tool box, back pack, or purse. Here's how to use the
    Biffy Bag (as seen on National Geographic).

Waste Management #2: Infectious Waste Bags.
Double Doodie bags will contain the Luggable Loo toilet system.
Trash bag may perform the same function. But for biohazardous
waste in a pandemic situation, you'll want further controls, such
as infectious waste bags.

  • Double Doodie: Pictured at the top of the page, Double
    Doodie toilet waste bags are designed for easy, no mess
    waste disposal. Each bag consists of an inner bag and an
    outer bag that seals easily and is leak proof. Use Double
    Doodie with Luggable Loo toilets as well as most other
    portable toilets.

  • Latex Gloves. If you don't have latex gloves, now's the time
    to stock up. Not only are they valuable in your first aid kit,
    and in pandemic situations, but you'll need a barrier
    between you and contaminents in sewage disposal or other
    unsavory tasks.

Waste Management #3: Sewage Treatment.

  • Aqua-Kem Toss Ins Holding Tank Deodorant: Pictured left,
    the Aqua-Kem Toss Ins is a holding tank deodorant in water
    soluble packs that's conveniently pre-measured.  Specially
    formulated for RV and marine holding tanks and all portable
    toilets, it's biodegradable, has  fresh scent and is safe for
    septic tanks.

  • Bio Clean: Natural Bacteria Enzymes found in Bio Clean can
    help you treat any type of raw sewage pit or cesspool. The
    bacteria used in Bio-Clean is grown in incubators and then
    dried and mixed with enzymes and other helpers. They lie
    dormant until they are mixed with water, and then it is
    hungry and active in about 30 minutes. Each piece of
    bacteria eats its own weight in waste in about one minute,
    but they also multiply. Bio Clean is a specially formulated
    blend of natural bacteria and powerful enzymes that digest
    dead organic waste material. Ideal for septic tanks, Happy
    Preppers will find it extremely useful and environmentally
    friendly product for processing waste.

  • RID-X: The powder formula of RID-X is scientifically
    formulated with special bacteria and enzymes to digest
    household waste. Simultaneously RID-X replenishes the
    delicate balance of beneficial bacteria and enzymes that
    help reduce the rate of sludge accumulation in your
    tank. RID- breaks down toilet paper, vegetable matter;
    while the lipase breaks down fats, oils, and grease; and
    protease breaks down proteins; and amylase breaks
    down starches.

Necessary Sanitation Supplies

  • Bleach. Sanitizing with bleach is a popular and economical
    method for preppers to deal with sanitation. But note that
    bleach expires! A good alternative to bleach is Steramine
    tablets, pictured immediate left. One  bottle makes 150
    gallons of cleaning solution!

  • Steramine Tablets. Steramine Quaternary sanitizing tablets
    is an economical household sanitizer for preppers. One
    bottle makes 150 gallons of cleaning. Steramine santizing
    tablets do not irritate the skin and it's fine to use on food
    equipment. Mix one tablet with a gallon of water and use in
    the bathroom or kitchen. Spray on knives and butchering
    equipment, and cutting boards, sinks, countertops, and all
    other non-porous articles and surfaces. Made in the U.S.A.

  • Toilet paper. Having adequate supply of toilet paper is a
    "no brainer" for preppers. In the aftermath of an economic
    catastrophe, it's possible for the production of toilet paper
    to run out. It might also become too dangerous to source
    toilet paper because of a pandemic or rioting. Don't even
    think of resorting to wiping with the pages of a telephone
    books, when you can simply plan ahead. Stock up when
    things go on sale. Cottonelle, pictured right, can be mailed
    to your door by Amazon.

Happy endings...
Waste not! Want not waste.
