World Toilet Day is Sunday, Nov. 19, and its theme is the proper containment, transport, treatment, and disposal/reuse of wastewater. The United Nations General Assembly officially dedicated World Toilet Day in 2013 to inspire action on a global sanitation crisis. One of the U.N.’s goals is to halve the proportion of untreated wastewater and increase the purification of recycled water.
More than 4.5 billion people in the world live without a household toilet that safely disposes of their waste.
Tucson Water offers rebates to qualifying customers who buy certain toilets.
