WC opin­ions flushed out

Geelong Advertiser - - WEEKEND EXTRA -

Af­ter re­ports say­ing the toi­lets fre­quented by tourists along the Great Ocean Road are “dis­grace­fully sub­stan­dard” there’s been a sug­ges­tion of “user pays” in­stead of free for all?

Pretty sure us­ing a toi­let is a ba­sic hu­man right. Janakan Seemampil­lai

If there were pub­lic toi­lets along the G.O.R. some­one would have to clean them. The coun­cil does not seem to want to em­ploy any­one to work on week­ends and pub­lic hol­i­days to clean dirty dun­nies or empty rub­bish re­cep­ta­cles ei­ther Lach­lan Cair­ney

Free! It’s a civil right. Un­like in Eu- rope. Every­where you go they charge you to pee. Demelza Oca­sic

Free. When ya got to go you got to go. Fiona Cauchi

No. The lo­cal coun­cil is mak­ing plenty off tourists and spend­ing noth­ing on the roads or de­vel­op­ment in the area so they can em­ploy peo­ple to take care of the lim­ited ameni­ties. Ni­cole Lee

Same. I live in the area. The rates are very high. Yet sim­ple fa­cil­i­ties such as toi­lets can­not even be cleaned reg­u­larly. Ashleigh Kelly

Def­i­nitely free. We aren’t Europe. Half the time there’s no toi­let pa­per. Fiona Ryan

What toi­lets? There’s hardly any any­way. Craig An­der­son

It needs a bus bay in Apollo Bay with fa­cil­i­ties, so when the tourists get off the buses they can go to a toi­let. The buses are pulling up in a street, be­hind the shops and peo­ple are open­ing peo­ple’s front gates and go­ing to the toi­let near their bins. Joanne Har­ri­son

I don’t use them. But they should be clean as a whis­tle see­ing we get a lot over­seas tourists us­ing them. Hi­lary El­iz­a­beth Ed­wick

User paid, the self-clean­ing toi­lets are great. Nice and clean. The state of most pub­lic toi­lets is a dis­grace. Michael Zim­ny­ckyj

Def­i­nitely user pays. Over­seas we paid $1 per visit. Come on Surf Coast Shire — ac­tion this for the big tourist venues on the GOR. Ian Treloar
