New interactive online map allows users to flag out clean and dirty public toilets
The public can now show and tell which public toilets are clean, and which are dirty.
This can be done with LOO Connect -- an interactive, online map that allows users to identify clean or dirty public toilets at a glance.
Users can then avoid any unpleasant experiencs with the help of a three-point cleanliness rating system.
Feedback can also be added to the map, alerting other users of a facility's condition.
And for cases that require special attention, pictures may also be uploaded.
The map uses the OneMap plug-in, supported by the Singapore Land Authority.
RAS president, Tan Puay Hoon, says the move is not meant to name and shame operators of dirty toilets.
Instead, it's meant to boost awareness of the need for public hygiene.
However, RAS will still work closely with the NEA to improve the cleanliness of dirty toilets.
" For the clean toilets, we really want to recognize their good work and encourage them to continue their good work. And for the dirty toilets, once we've identified, RAS will actively go and approach them to see in what way we can help them to improve, and turn it from dirty toilets to clean toilets. It has to be dry, clean, and odourless. And that you have all the toilet paper and hand soap available for the user."
According to a recent RAS survey, food centres, markets and coffeeshops are home to the dirtiest toilets in the country.
That's something that LOO Connect may perhaps change.
The interactive site is accessible via the RASwebsite.
