Duke Farms, in Hillsborough, NJ, installed three Clivus M54 Trailhead units within the last year in order to provide public restroom facilities at the 2,740-acre estate. According to a recent New York Times article that features the farm, “the estate has 22 miles of trails winding past fountains, lagoons and sculptures; 810 acres of woodlands; and 464 acres of a grassland bird habitat” and is home to “30 endangered species and 230 varieties of birds.”
The farm will re-open to the public on May 19, 2012. The mission of the farm is to teach visitors to “be good stewards of the environment” and the Clivus composting toilet systems were purchased because they fit with the organization’s mission and because the restrooms provide remote facilities.
The Presidio is a former military post that was transferred to the National Park Service as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco, California. The Presidio Trust manages 80% of the interior land of the park and the National Park Service manages the coastal areas. The Presidio Trust has rehabilitated the park’s historic buildings, restored open spaces, provided public programs, maintained utilities and infrastructure, and continues to fund the long-term needs of the park.
A two-stall Clivus Trailhead was purchased by the Trust in 2011 to provide restroom facilities for a trail near the El Polin spring, which is part of the Tennessee Hollow watershed. The trail, located within the park, provides recreation opportunities to both residents and visitors. The Clivus system was selected because it was cost-effective compared to extending the sewer and is in line with the Trust’s sustainability goals. The Clivus system will also prevent any pollution of the watershed.

The composting toilet system and restroom building were delivered pre-fabricated and custom finished with cedar shingle and stacked stone exterior and a cedar shingle roof. The foam-flush toilet fixture offers the comfort of home and a built in solar-powered fan eliminates all odors.
This post is about two and a half weeks late. Apologies.
April 9th The Picardo P-Patch in Seattle, Washington hosted a gardener gathering to kick off the spring growing season.
According to Trent Elwing, organizer, “Tours were part of Saturday’s (4/9/11) activities including a stop at Picaloo. Gardeners got a how-to on making deposits and then the porch floor was swung up for the turd’s eye view.”
The P-Patch is a community garden where neighborhood residents keep plots. The Picaloo is a Clivus Multrum M54 Trailhead that’s available year round to gardeners.

A recent article in the USGA Green Section Record discusses the rising use of composting toilets as on-course restrooms.
Clivus Multrum has a range of Models available for golf course restrooms. Our M54 Series is available in one or two stall units that can be custom finished and delivered pre-fabricated or as a kit. Our Foam-flush toilet provides the comfort of a conventional restroom while using only 6 ounces per visit.
