A new 20p charge for access to public toilets ran by the East Lindsey District Council has raised the residents anger, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The scheme run by East Lindsey District Council has brought in charges at Mablethorpe and Sutton and Sea, and now it costs 20p to go at 13 public toilet blocks.
The change has sparked a furious debate among residents who say that the cleaning of the cubicles is not good enough to warrant paying to use them.
“The toilets are all dirty, filthy and have wet floors, no paper, and no soap. I’d rather buy a cup of tea in a cafe and use there nice clean toilets. It’s bad enough using these toilets for free but they will be in the same state 20p or free.”
Charging a fee for access is quite often the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding – and indeed keeping these facilities open for the general public, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really put its experience to good work.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and 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.
