faeces for cash barter system introduced in Ho

Public Toilet

Public Toilet

The Ho Municipality has begun a seemingly bizarre policy in which residents trade faeces and urine for cash.

The dry toilet technology is an initiative from a University of Applied in Finland in which faecal matters are turned into manure for purposes of growing vegetables.

The urine is separated from the faeces and allowed to decompose for about 6-12 months. Saw dust is used in treating the faeces in a seperate chamber to speed up dehydration.

Residents are ready to cash-in on the new initiative.

Officials of the Municipality tell Joy News they will use the initiative to tackle open defecation in the community and also produce manure to improve agriculture in the country.
