Greetings from Clivus Multrum!

This seasonís Natural Solution News highlights the practicality and popularity of Clivus composting toilet systems at two rest areas in New York. Clivus also debuts four M54 Trailhead styles to fit every need.

NYDOT Goes Clivus

Whitney Point Rest Area

Chalk one up for Clivus highway rest stops! Whitney Point and Broome Gateway Rest Areas are both on I-81, the major N-S route in central New York State. Both sites had failing waste treatment systems from decades earlier. Engineers from NYDOT explored options, including Clivus. They were finally convinced by a visit to the Bronx Zoo Eco-Restroom, which is a seasonally high-use facility.The Clivus system represents a significant short and long-term financial savings over the conventional alternative they might have gone with: a "package" treatment plant.

M35 Composting toilet systems at Whitney Point

Whitney Point, about 25 miles north of Binghamton, NY, was originally constructed with a large lower level for State vehicles. This allowed for relatively easy Clivus retrofit. Twelve M35 units serve the steady flow of visitors and give the facility an annual capacity of more than 780,000 uses. With 18 Foam Flush toilet fixtures and two urinals, the facility uses 95% less water than even today's low-flow fixtures.

Broome Gateway Rest Area

At the Broome Gateway Rest Area, a full-blown renovation took place. The new facility, which is five minutes north of the Pennsylvania line, welcomes travelers to the thriving Southern Tier region. It includes a large Taste NY venue, which gives travelers a chance to experience a wide range of local products within an open seating area. Twenty M35 composters give an annual usage of more than 1.25 million. Here, 20 Foam Flush toilets and six urinals handle the traffic and represent additional water savings.

Clivus Introduces Four M54 Trailhead Styles

Clivus Multrum is pleased to introduce four standard styles for the M54 Trailhead: Stockbridge, Ipswich, Rockport, and Essex. Each M54 Trailhead style is available as a single or double-stall building and can be purchased as a kit or pre-fabricated building. The M54 Trailhead provides an ADA accessible bathroom structure that accommodates 22,000 uses per fixture per year utilizing either waterless or Foam-flush toilets, and is especially well-suited for remote locations without electric or sewer access. A custom solar system powers a ventilation system to keep the restroom odorless.


The Stockbridge remains our standard style and includes painted or stained 8" pine board and batten siding with an asphalt shingle roof. Shingle and paint/stain colors are selected by the customer. The Stockbridge can be further customized with a standing seam metal roof instead of shingles.
