Through our cleaning service we provide the upkeep of some 30 public conveniences throughout East Lothian.
We currently provide eight attended toilets that all have RADAR accessed disabled facilities. These are based in each of the larger towns in East Lothian.
The quality and standards of the service provision in our public conveniences is such that, year on year they receive numerous prestigious awards from the British Toilet Association Loo of the Year award scheme.
We also provide the upkeep of another 25 units, some only open on a seasonal basis, some open over the whole year.
Disabled toilet facilities
RADAR key scheme
The National RADAR key scheme offers independent access to disabled people to around 7,000 locked public toilets around the UK, with special disabled facilities. It was recognised by local authorities that due to vandalism and misuse that these premises must be kept locked to ensure and maintain standards of hygiene and the general upkeep of the facilities.
Only one key will be issued per applicant with proof of eligibility at the time of purchasing the key, e.g. Blue Badge Award, letter from the Department of Work and Pensions.
Purchase of keys
Keys can be purchased / collected from any of the East Lothian Council offices.
