Four Steps Toward Beneficial Graywater Reuse
- 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.
- A household drain is not a waste disposal site. Consider the drain as a conduit to the natural world.
- Do not allow any toxic chemicals to enter your drain system. Use biodegradable soaps and environmentally benign cleaning agents.
- Use water sparingly and efficiently. If possible, collect rainwater and/or reuse graywater.
