Incontinence product disposal bins have been installed in male public toilet facilities across the Camden area after Council joined the Bins4Blokes men’s health campaign.
Bins4Blokes is an Australia-wide awareness and advocacy campaign, encouraging providers of toilets in public spaces to include disposal bins for incontinence products in male toilets.
One in ten men live with incontinence with 1.34 million Australian boys and men experience incontinence. A study of Australian men with urinary incontinence found that almost a third said they stayed home as a precautionary measure.
For boys and men who use incontinence products, there are generally very few or no places for them to be disposed of and this can cause mental health issues and isolation.
Now they can get out and about in Camden confidently, thanks to our connection with the Bins4Blokes campaign which is an initiative of the Continence Foundation of Australia.
