    HK Toilet Association's Genius Ideas

    He said modern toilets and designs are good, but due to a lack of proper maintenance they get start to wear out after about six months.
    At present, the maintenance of public toilets is outsourced to contractors, and the firm with the lowest bid wins the job. They employ elderly people, some even in their 80s, who work 12 hours a day without even a proper lunch break, he said.

    > vice-president of the Hong Kong Toilet Association.

    Was the president of the Toilet Association too busy to attend?

    They should outsource it all to whoever runs the toilets at Pacific Place, they are always nice and clean

    Hong Kong actually has pretty good public toilets compared to many (including developed) countries I know

    Not just public facilities. We have two floors in an office building in Central so the toilets on each floor are ours. Countless reports of:

    Wet/bloody seats
    Wet/bloody floors
    Shoe prints on seats
    Used pads and tampons hanging out of waste bins
    Poopy toilet paper on floors

    The worst are the ones where the seats are down....you just don't know what horrors you might find beneath!

    On a more serious note the government could easily put a living wage clause and maintenance clauses in the contracted out services. It doesn't hence the toilet grannies earning a pittance and working 12_ hours per day

    Unfortunately, it's exactly the same in our office. These people consider themselves to be "professionals" and have the nerve to look down on those from the northern side of the border...

    Read the below somewhere:

    Any of you males out there: can you tell me why in Asia the floor directly under the urinals is always wet?
