SOMERS, N.Y. - The Angle Fly Preserve s first composting toilet was on its way to completion last week when the snowstorm hit. Work continued until the goodhearted people who volunteer at the preserve finally gave up to go home.
With one more day of work, the assembling of the prefabricated structure can be finished. Any and all volunteers are invited to pitch in on Sunday, November 6. Work will start at 10 a.m. No tools are required. Simply wear appropriate clothing.
If you are not available in the morning, your help would still be appreciated at about 1 p.m., when the roof panels will be installed. They are large and awkward, so extra hands are needed. It should take about an hour.
Angle Fly is installing two composting toilets for the use of visitors and hunters. The one in the time lapse video is at the front entrance. The video shows the work accomplished over a three day period. The other toilet will be located at the upper parking lot.
Composting toilets use little or no water. They are successfully used in American National Parks and in roadside facilities in Europe.
