Towards cleaner toilets
By YU JI

KUCHING City South Council (MBKS) is revamping its Food Grading System for coffee shops and restaurants, making it compulsory for establishments in Category C to be closed temporarily until they are clean.

At the same time, the council will soon introduce the Star Rating Toilet System through which all public toilets within its jurisdiction will be given star ratings of between one and five.

MBKS Public Health and Licensing Standing Committee chairman Taufik Abdul Ghani said the two measures were in discussion stage.

“We hope to introduce the measures within a few months. The moves will further raise awareness on cleanliness,” Taufik said.

MBKS launched the Food Grading System in 2006 and it was well received.

The new measures will set stricter criteria and reward establishments that take extra initiatives to maintain cleanliness.

“For example, coffee shops and shopping malls with separate male and female toilets will earn more points,” Taufik told reporters, after inspecting the toilets at The Spring Shopping Mall.

Mall spokesperson Joanna Ling said that changing the public attitude was difficult, adding that vandalism was a key issue.

“Take our newly-installed hand dryers installed at a cost of RM3,500 each, for instance. Even on the first day, people were using them as ashtrays,” Ling said.

“Our cleaners spend a lot of time cleaning graffiti on toilet walls every day. We need the public to be more civic-minded.”

I tried to suggest to MBKS through the online suggestion form but it doesn't seems to work.

Well, just hope the the authority concern could make sure all the public toilets in KUching stay dry and clean!

It seems like most of our public toilet are wet with bad smell

Even in Holiday Inn (last Time)....so embarrassing to see a tourist came out from the toilet and complaining to her friend said that the public toilet here is disguisting.... that's really gave us a bad impression...

Agree with all the 'valid' complaint.

2 parts:
1: the people need to be 'love' all public services and know where to throw the unwanted thing and keep clean after use.
2: the management program need to be improve, enhance and result need to be measure, monitor and evaluate.

If everyone (user/worker) take the public toilet as their home toilet, i believe the outcome can be improve over night.
