Compost maintenance service

The Daily Dump provides home composting systems-- including clay pots to collect and compost food waste, an optional service to maintain the composting process, and 'crisis visits' to help people when they've created a composting mess. What if latrines had a range of service options for regular maintenance and crisis management?

First, these are the most beautiful home composting pots I've seen, especially compared to the roto-molded industrial-looking bins I usually think of.

Second, the idea of tying in food compost and waste compost is very interesting! From a system perspective, I like Sally & Jocelyn's extension of these types of services to sanitation waste. From a perception perspective, I like merging the thinking of all these different kinds of wet wastes into a single stream of household material that has to be managed.
