. We are in what could be called a suburban environment, and our system works fine. When we empty the compost toilet, we put it into a holding bin where it ages for another year or two. Because of the wood shavings or sawdust we use, it doesn't smell, even when taking it out of the house, so there is nothing to attract attention. When we empty the holding bin and spread the compost on our trees and shrubs, it is beautiful stuff. I do wear bright yellow rubber gloves when doing this, so that might raise an eyebrow. But doing it early in the morning, or wearing clear latex gloves, would take care of that potential problem. They never need know.
