rope dry sewage

Sewage solution for slums like Kibera (Kenya) and slave camps like Sonapur (Dubai)
  [vote for,

Dry toilets are made of a simple toilet seat, and sawdust or coffee pellets to cover it. When full or wished to be replaced, the bucket is hung on a rope.

A fresh bag of pellets and a clean (plastic covered) bucket is replaced.

It needs cooperation of the residents but is an extremely low cost, comfortable solution, which would "take the shit off the roads".

See links for why this is needed.

       I don't understand this. I get that it's a bucket toilet, but I don't understand the "hung on a rope" when full.

       Something about lynching politicians ? They're all full of shit, and deserve to be hanged.

       I don't understand it either. Is the proposal that toilets are somehow replaced by lengths of rope?

       The secret is in the coffee pellets covering the toilet seat. It's all very simple.
