Four Steps Toward Beneficial Graywater Reuse

  1. Keep as much organic material out of the water as possible. Use a compost toilet and have a compost system for food scraps. Never use an in-sink garbage disposal. Compost grease, fats and oils.
  2. A household drain is not a waste disposal site. Consider the drain as a conduit to the natural world.
  3. Do not allow any toxic chemicals to enter your drain system. Use biodegradable soaps and environmentally benign cleaning agents.
  4. Use water sparingly and efficiently. If possible, collect rainwater and/or reuse graywater.
