I was collecting our household urine in a simply 5 gallon bucket, for distribution onto gardens, plants and compost piles. After I mentioned to a friend that we were having odor issues with the bucket, he warned me that urine + plastic = nasty stuff leaching out of the plastic, and doing bad things to my flora and fauna.
Now, this guy is a good friend and a great permaculturist, but I want a second opinion. He's also derisive of the idea of using cut up tires in a raised-bed keyhole garden, "even though it's in the Design Manual". So, I'm wondering if anyone else has any comments on this - urine bucket ok? not? how about tires in the garden?
