A council wants to stop money being flushed away via its public toilets. Cornwall Council plans to save a seven-figure sum, and is currently contacting all parish and town councils as part of a comprehensive review of the service. Julian German, Cornwall Council cabinet member for Environment, said: "We are fully aware of the importance of public conveniences to residents and visitors to Cornwall but we believe that savings can be made through a range of measures."
Cornwall could save some of its public conveniences by installing Toilet Turnstiles’ coin operated turnstiles, which are manufactured from graded stainless steel for ease of cleaning and maintenance. The nominal fee charged for entry would enable the West Country authority to maintain the facilities to a good standard and generate enough revenue for the general day to day cleaning and upkeep. The separate coin box can be mounted either in front of the turnstile, at the side or wall mounted with the cash box at the rear, thus giving many options.
