The honey bucket sits under a wooden frame affixed with a toilet seat lid. The honey bucket gets its name from the actual five–gallon (19 litre) buckets which were once used as containers for honey. These are the same type of plastic buckets used for shipping many paints, cleaners, and solvents, as well as institutional quantities of food products.
The bucket is emptied, usually about once a week, by carrying it by way of boardwalk or road to a nearby honey bucket well or hopper. A honey bucket well is a hole in the ground capped with a raised wooden enclosure. A hopper is a metal container, which is then removed by the city/village authority to a larger dumping area.
