Public toilets in Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, Scotland, will be closed in order to undergo some much needed refurbishments, a news report in the local media has recently revealed.
The public conveniences are privately managed by two local business people, but the funds required for the refurbishment have actually been provided by the local council. Over the past three years, the council provided the traders with £15,000 available to traders for running the toilets and this sum wasn’t used in full, so the balance of £3,500 was used for the refurbishment process.
One of the public toilets’ administrators said that “I’m absolutely delighted that we can get on with making the toilets a better facility for everyone to use. They are very shabby just now and in desperate need of a lick of paint.”
“We will also be fitting new cubicles on either side, sanitary ware, sinks, a new hot water system and new lighting. This is just a make-over but at least it will be much nicer” he added.
This is one of the fortunate cases when public communities manage to step up and keep their public toilets, but it’s quite a rare sight today.
Maintaining public toilets open typically requires some solid investments, some of which can be easily recuperated by implementing a solid and reliable access restriction system, such as the one supplied by Toilet Turnstiles.
Our products are developed from the need for Local Authorities & Private Companies to provide Public Conveniences to a good standard and generate revenue for the general day to day maintenance, cleaning and upkeep etc, with the added benefit of preventing people from wandering into the toilets as they now have to pay for the privilege, or "spend a penny".
