Jetson Green » Waste Not with a Combo Sink Toilet

This kind of wash basin toilet basin flush was (first?) used in a public housing development called Quarry Hill Flats in the city of Leeds in W.Yorkshire England in the mid 1930′s. The housing also used a kitchen sink disposal system called .. er the Garchey System. The waste was flushed to be dried and burned for fuel in an on-site laundry facility.
