Faecal sludge management (FSM)

Faecal sludge management (FSM) is the collection, transport, and treatment of faecal sludge from pit latrines, septic tanks, or other onsite sanitation systems. Faecal sludge is a mixture of human excreta, water and solid wastes (e.g. toilet paper or other anal cleansing materials, menstrual hygiene materials) that are disposed of in pits, tanks or vaults of onsite sanitation systems.
