Which outdoor dry toilet to choose?

by France Boyer

There can be many reasons to equip yourself with an outdoor dry toilet: a construction site, people coming to the house this summer, a big event planned, for a nature park…
But which model to choose?

The Ventarèl Douglas cabin

Whether you’re a family user or a frequent visitor, the choice of capacity

At Lécopot we offer indoor and outdoor dry toilets.


outdoor dry toilets

as we call them, are wooden cabins that are either equipped with dry toilets, or can accommodate them.

These cabins can be accompanied by family-size dry toilets (

15 to 21-liter buckets

), medium-capacity (

65-litre bin

) or high-capacity (

90-litre bin

The 65-litre bins will allow around 110 uses before emptying, and the 90-litre bins will allow around 160.
Standard buckets in food-grade plastic and stainless steel are suitable for family use.
A family of 4 will empty the bucket about once every 2 days in the main toilet, while the bucket of an auxiliary toilet will be emptied every 3-4 days (it’s advisable not to exceed 4 days without emptying the bucket, otherwise odors may appear).

Tip: if you’re having people over and want to keep an indoor dry toilet, remember to bring an extra bucket (and lid). This will make it easier for you to rotate your oil changes. But if you can’t empty the bucket right away, this will also allow you to make it wait. Locked away in a corner out of sight, you’ll have time to empty it later!

Which capacity for which model?

Some cabins offer different capacities of dry toilet buckets/bins, while others do not.

La Ventarèl :

This cabin is sold without toilet. This model can be used in a variety of ways, for example as a garden shed or beach hut.

An occupational therapist helped us design this model to meet accessibility standards for people with reduced mobility.

Like the other cabins, it is available in spruce or Douglas fir (untreated or stained).
