City pays residents to use toilet

Musiri in Tamil Nadu, pays its citizens every time they use the specially constructed Ecosan Community Compost Toilet(ECCT) with a view to teach them proper hygiene. The government-backed program has been serving two purposes: It encourages people to discard age-old practices of urinating and defecating in the open, leading to diseases. Secondly, the waste products go into research to test their effectiveness as fertilizers.

The collected urine is being used as bio-fertilizer as part of a two-year research project conducted by the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) under an MoU with SCOPE and 400,000 funding from the Dutch NGO, WASTE.
