MIRI: The Housing and Local Government Ministry will reward those who maintain a high standard of hygiene in public toilets.  

Deputy Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui said the ministry was mooting several reward schemes to be offered to local authorities and those who maintained public toilets. 

“Our aim is to get the public to be actively involved in the campaign and we (ministry) have started to clean up and upgrade the standard of public toilets in all states. 

“These reward schemes are among the measures that we have planned. The ministry will launch a national publicity campaign on June 30 in Johor Baru,” he told reporters at his office yesterday. 

Chin, who is Miri MP, said the ministry would also go on air to garner support and co-operation from the public to effectively stop the problem of dirty public toilets which has been a major headache for the authorities for many years. 

Television and radio networks would be roped in to educate the public on what needed to be done, he said. 

“We need to change the mindset of public toilet users and those who operate these facilities, such as in shopping outlets, coffeeshops, petrol stations, bus stations, airports, markets and at rest areas along the highway,” he said.
