The Aboaboso project is now moving to the next stage with construction of a composting facility now complete. Many of the logistics associated with commissioning a self-contained and sustainable sanitation programme are now being decided by the village’s residents. Among the first decisions taken by the community was to set up a collection of all household organic waste every two days for transport by community members to the compost facility.
All 6 chambers have been filled and the contents are turned regularly. Compost toilet designs have been agreed by the community and plans are underway to begin construction.
