Given the rather bad state of the council’s finances, all public toilets in Herefordshire are to be closed to save money, officials have revealed.
Apparently, the 25 toilets cost around 250,000 a year to maintain, which is a sum the council simply doesn’t afford to pay anymore. However, on the bright side, people will be able to use facilities at 14 shops, pubs and other businesses to have signed up for their Community Toilet Scheme instead.
Council officials tried to present this move as a positive one, claiming that public toilets in the area were “not that good” to begin with.
Since the costs associated to running the public conveniences is not that high, keeping them open might actually be an easier task than expected, especially if the council decides to start charging a small access fee for their use. And the best solution for such an undertaking is represented by the Coin Operated Turnstiles manufactured by Toilet Turnstiles.
Built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, our turnstiles also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
