All lodges are equipped with low flush toilets resulting in 20% savings in water consumption. The Tubing Center has water-free urinals reducing water demands and sewer impacts.
The Summit provides toilet facilities at the Nesting Bird Yurt and Jim Brooks Hut to preserve the environment from human waste. Vaults for these toilets are hauled off the trails each week and pumped into trucks to be exported to treatment sites.
Paper Towel Conservation
The Summit has installed sensor-activated paper towel dispensers in all bathroom facilities. With these new devices, guests run their hand in front of the sensor for a single paper towel to be dispensed rather than grabbing a large clump of towels.
