Moscow Metro to Add 30 Composting Toilets for Public Use

A total of 30 composting toilet facilities will be added to Moscow metro stations for public use, the Moskva news agency reported Thursday, citing Andrei Kruzhalin, spokesman for the head of the Moscow metro.

“We are now monitoring the stations, inspecting places for the possible installation of free toilets,” Kruzhalin was quoted as saying by the news agency.

He added that the toilets would be installed at those stations where there is the greatest demand, and that the additions would not disturb the historical appearance of the stations.
