A BIG change has come to Tenbury's public toilets, with a new addition installed.

Male toilets in the Malvern Hills district have been updated with sanitary bins in support of a new campaign.

Malvern Hills District Council has recently installed sanitary bins in all eight of their public toilet blocks, including those in Tenbury, in support of the Boys need Bins campaign by Prostate Cancer UK.

Signs have also been placed outside the toilet blocks to make people aware there are sanitary bins inside.

According to the charity, one in eight men will get prostate cancer, and some will experience bladder and bowel problems as a side effect of their treatment.

As well as this, in the UK about one in three men over 65 will experience urinary incontinence issues.

The national campaign aims to create change and raise awareness about male incontinence and the need for bins in male toilets.

The campaign asks for the law to be updated and hopes the Government will make it mandatory to have sanitary bins in all male toilets nationally.

The council’s public toilet blocks are located in Tenbury, Upton upon Severn, and Malvern.

Malvern Theatres also installed the provisions in their facilities.

Councillor John Gallagher, portfolio holder for resources at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We are really pleased to be supporting this campaign.

"It is important that men are given access to sanitary bins in public toilets to help and support with any health needs they may have.”
