These instructions are meant for initial startup of the composting system. As we used to say almost 20 years ago, it's just like baking a cake - you just have to add the ingredients and stir! Please note - normal toilet paper is part of the mix - it is a carbon source and you can use as much as you do with a regular toilet. No special toilet paper or cutdown in usage is required!
Begin operation by carrying out the startup procedure described below, and then continue with the "Ongoing Toilet Maintenance" routine. It normally takes six weeks before a compost is properly established. You will know that this has happened when:
Compost volume increases more slowly
Compost turns black and becomes loam-like
Toilet paper decomposes within a few day
