Public toilets in Brynmawr have re-opened after being taken over by one of the town councillor’s private distribution business, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Independent town councillor Wayne Hodgins has been pursuing the opportunity to take charge of the public loos in the town after first submitting a proposal to Blaenau Gwent council in February this year.
His efforts follow the council’s decision to close all public toilets in the major towns throughout the borough back in November 2013.
The toilets officially opened on December 1. The building caters for males and females and also has a disabled unit on the side.
The toilets will now be open during the winter from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. These times will then be extended in the summer.
The toilets are currently free to use, although a small fee may be introduced in the new year to support the maintenance costs.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts 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.
