Bath portable toilet scheme 'working'
A scheme aimed at stopping people from urinating in the street in Bath is proving successful, the council says.
About 14,000 people have used the portable toilets, funded by Bath and North East Somerset council, every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.
The figure was calculated by the average 30 litres of urine collected from the toilets every night.
The two portable toilets have been based in Orange Grove taxi rank in the city since October last year.
The scheme was started as part of the council's work with Avon and Somerset Police to help ensure safety.
Councillor Vic Pritchard said: "It is noticeable that fewer people are using street corners and shop doorways to urinate, meaning the police can deal with other anti-social behaviour incidents and council street cleaners can concentrate on grime hot-spots elsewhere."
