Proposal on how to manage public toilets

There has been private company has come up with an initiative and is building modern toilets in cities. They put up the premises complete and source for individuals to manage them. Public toilets are key part of the urban environment, the research will examine and evaluates the pervasive management of public toilets. The issue is situated within larger context, design and management of the urban environment in assumptions about safety and sanitation is imperative and laws that govern the specific environment continuing acts of cleanliness maintenance from within core areas of public toilets as located in public spaces.

Public toilet comprise of base portion having an uppermost peripheral horizontal surface, said base portion set within a suitable anchor having a horizontal top surface, said uppermost peripheral horizontal surface and said horizontal top surface being coplanar, said base portion including a water supply line and waste disposal pipe. Public toilet facility wherein the toilet is operatively connected to the equipment and machinery compartment such that the toilet is contained within the equipment and machinery compartment when the door is in the first position, and the toilet is operative to a position at least partially outside the compartment and accessible to a user in the enclosure when the door is in the second position.

The upgrading of public toilets is essential in accordance to management planning and ways. The research will present detailed pattern on how to ideally managed public toilets with several studies presented in organization of literature which came from other management groups and affiliates that are concern with public toilets in such proper sanitation and cleanliness for the good of every person as part of the general public. Thus, the need to come with survey questionnaire amounting to the determination as well as recognition of public toilet management success, "Public Toilet Use Satisfaction Survey" as based on respondents usage of public toilets asking them for example, how effective is the toilet systems upon actual usage?, how is the level of cleanliness? Is it a satisfactory level or not?

There has to be several provisions with regards to public toilets placing in a discretionary activity for authorities under certain government Act and the need to review service level standards for the study. Thus, public participation in review will have to show community support for provision of public toilets. The assimilation of community outcomes to which the research approach contributes for such safety and health to people and have sustainable community and environment. The need to upgrade and maintain public toilets in accordance with several strategy regarding public toilets and some listing of performance measures for the management plan like for instance: Maintain facilities to comply with all relevant statutes, Achieve public satisfaction of quality of maintained, Standard of facilities of seventy percent or higher. The maintenance and operation decisions are based on feedback from cleaning contractor, the public and inspections by authorities. The demand for public toilets usually occurs where people congregate away from residence or workplace for length of time and where no public toilet facilities are provided as part of another building.

  1. The residents and visitors expect public toilets to be available in the commercial area of each community

  2. The residents expect public toilets to be available in popular rural and semi rural passive recreation reserves also, to be available at major sporting venues

  3. The public expect public toilets to be accessible, clean, safe and well maintained, environmental effects of tourism is driving demand for more public toilets

The primary benefit from public toilets is such usage by visitors, which is people based benefit as being excludable and rival. There are existence values for leisure opportunities and economic development from the provision of infrastructure. Government policy is to ensure cost effective access to heritage and leisure amenities and to support economic development. The private good component of research is recoverable through user charging to recover the economic allocation of costs upon frustrating policy objectives. For the toilet blocks that are built, method has been for the corporation to estimate the construction costs according to a government schedule of rates, and then to call for tenders from contractors. Engineering wings of local bodies deal with these matters, and there is rarely any consultation with inhabitants regarding the location, design, construction and provision for maintenance. The agencies responsible for construction and maintenance generally have little accountability to the communities in which they build, and there is no sense of ownership among the inhabitants or their organizations for the new toilet blocks. The quality of toilet construction is often poor and the design often inappropriate, communities often have to pay them extra money to do the job for which they are

already being paid. The government bodies that build the public toilet blocks see these as their property and make no effort to involve communities in their maintenance. The establishment of relationships demonstrates to community leaders how their community structures could change if they were able to access

the government resources. Questionnaires and other survey methodologies are discussed with communities and modified as necessary, and all data is fed back to them to be checked and, where needed, modified (Burra, Patel and Kerr, 2003 p. 29). Detailed hut counts, with each hut given a number and marked on detailed maps, have proven particularly important in managing resettlement as interaction within the community through hut counts, household surveys and settlement profiles establishing rapport and create knowledge base that the community own and control (Burra, Patel and Kerr, 2003 p. 29).
