The latest poll results suggest a majority of Americans support using an indoor bathroom sink for composting.
A new survey from the National Association of Counties found 55 percent of Americans would like to see the nation’s largest private company start offering composting facilities.
The survey of 1,100 registered voters found 53 percent support a public bathroom sink, which the association says is the minimum requirement for most private businesses to be able to offer composting services.
The survey also found 56 percent support public toilet stalls, and 40 percent favor private toilets.
The association also found that 49 percent of respondents say they have seen a person or business using an outdoor toilet for compost.
The poll comes as the Trump administration is trying to expand public composting in many U.S. states.
The Environmental Protection Agency is considering a rule to allow businesses to offer more than 30 percent of their operations as public compost facilities.
In a statement, the EPA said the rule is part of the agency’s efforts to ensure all Americans can enjoy safe, clean air and clean water.
