We understand that for some of our whānau, the long drop or two-bucket emergency toilet is just not feasible. There are a couple of alternate options below for this whānau:
1. Take a chair, make a hole in the base and put it over a long-drop or bucket toilet.
2. Look into the option of a commode. This can sit over a bucket or long-drop, or, if it has a pail, place a sturdy plastic bag or bin liner inside.
3. The last resort option is to place a large, sturdy bin liner/plastic bag inside your toilet bowl. The bag needs to be big enough to cover the whole bowl to avoid spillage. Place some dry material in the bag such as sawdust, straw, dry leaves and soil, or shredded newspaper, to soak up as much wee as possible. Dispose of your bag into an outdoor rubbish bin. Make sure you clean your hands thoroughly.
