Using waste water to flush toilet is highly inefficient and unhygienic.
The tank will have to handle overflow and function as a siphone while full or empty to contain the stench. It will require regular cleaning and maintenance.

In this picture, the water is mixed half and half. I do not see a reliable solution to make that work, unless you have a double tank. This means double all the parts plus the ones that will make the waste water business work (see above). Double all the parts and you double the cost and a chance of something breaking.

In addition to all of this, this will mean that after flushing, you will have waste water sitting in the toilet untill someone uses the toilet again. Then, it's waste water sitting in the toilet again. This will increase the number of bacteria in the toilet as well as cause a stench. Furthermore, it will increase required cleaning of the toilet. And it will never be clean because there will always be waste water sitting in it.

Seeing as one flush is 3 or 10 litres of water respectively, if there is not enough waste water, you will not be able to flush the toilet. It will take two or three flushes and thus you will waste more "new" water.

Using utility water instead of drinking water would be a better solution, though it would require accomodation of utility water lines in the building and general area, or rain water collection, which is unreliable for the most part.

tl;dr Good intentions, crap idea.
