"Homeless people in San Francisco are exactly that -- people. Then why are most of them forced to go to the bathroom on the streets? I noticed this problem running in the early morning down Market Street - -San Francisco's main vein for traffic and the homeless. The goal of this campaign is to increase the urgency of San Francisco's Public Works program to build more self-cleaning, 24-hour public restrooms."

Despite the addition of public "Pit Stops" around the city, it's no secret that San Francisco has a poop problem. To bring the issue to light—in an unavoidable fashion—mobile shower provider Lava Mae plans to place a massive toilet in the center of Hayes Valley this Saturday, November 19th.

Do you think that San Francisco needs a good cleaning? Is the City dirtier in your neighborhood than it ever has been?

Tell us more! If you have specific areas of San Francisco that you think need a good cleaning because they haven’t been cleaned in a long, long time, email us (sfbeautiful.org/contact/)! We are putting together a group to take on a close look at this issue.

In order to be effective we need to hear from you! You are invited to send pictures that we will post on our Facebook page: Coalition for a Clean San Francisco: www.facebook.com/cleansf

A clean San Francisco will thank you!

Seems like a great project. Maybe the temporary toilets can be better maintained and deployed than the JCDecaux ones.

"The Pit Stop is a project operated by San Francisco Public Works that provides portable toilets and sinks, used needle receptacles and dog waste stations in San Francisco's most impacted neighborhoods.

The Pit Stop facilities are staffed and trucked to and from the sites daily. The solar-powered toilets are serviced daily at a remote location before returned to the Pit Stop locations.

San Francisco Public Works is operating the Pit Stops in partnership with the nonprofit SF Clean City, which staffs the locations to keep the facilities safe and secure.

Pit Stop Hours
Tenderloin - Tuesday-Friday - 2 pm to 9 pm"

"Last week, with help from employees from the San Francisco Clean City Coalition, the city began staffing the green self-cleaning toilet outside the 16th and Mission BART station and installed used needle and dog waste receptacles nearby. Like the similarly named program started last year in the Tenderloin, Mission Pit Stop may eventually be expanded to include portable public toilets – on 16th between Mission and Capp streets."

I live in an area with lots of homeless people. They often poop on the street. I've talked to some of them about this -- it's not that they like pooping on the street, but they have very few options. There must be some way to have public bathrooms that solve this health hazard but at the same time don't become really seedy filthy warrens themselves (keys? attendants? fobs? tokens?)
