55% of Seoul Citizens Believe Public Toilet Cleaning System Needed

The majority of Korean citizens think that a system to keep public toilets clean is needed. This system would penalize people for dirtying public toilets.
On March 21 the Citizen's Coalition for Restroom Culture [sic] reported that 55 percent of respondents were in favor of some kind of public washroom cleaning system. The poll, carried out last month, interviewed 1,280 people in Seoul.
According to the survey, the problems in greatest need of remedying were the lack of sanitary articles like toilet paper and soap (71 percent), followed by poor sanitary conditions (62 percent), and foul odors (53 percent).
With reference to gas stations in Seoul LG-Caltex Oil was deemed to house the cleanest public toilets, followed by SK, Ssangyong, and the Hyundai Oil Company.
