Camden first in NSW to join Bins4Blokes campaign
Posted 3 years ago
Camden will become the first area in NSW to join Bins4Blokes men’s health campaign, after Council endorsed the project at last night’s ordinary meeting.
BINS4Blokes is an Australia-wide awareness and advocacy campaign promoting the installation of sanitary disposal bins in male public toilet facilities. The campaign is also an initiative of the Continence Foundation of Australia, encouraging providers of toilets in public spaces to include disposal bins for incontinence products in male toilets.
The project will include the installation of approximately 70 bin units across the Camden area and assist boys and men living with incontinence.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the campaign was another step towards supporting men’s health issues.
“The health and wellbeing of the community is of paramount importance to Council and this is a positive for all of our male residents,” Cr Fedeli said.
“For boys and men who use incontinence products, there are very few or no places for them to be disposed and this has in the past led to them not wanting to leave the house and getting down on themselves.
“The Bins4Blokes initiative provides an opportunity for us to participate in a project that facilitates and further enhances social inclusion within the community.
“Council has taken large strides to supporting a number of great initiatives and foundations including both women and men’s health over the last few years and I am proud to be on board.”
