Toilets, Hand Washing Station, and Showers on 3rd Ave

Two Toilets, one ADA compliant, with a hand washing station and showers are on 3rd Ave in Venice courtesy of Urban Alchemy.

Toilets — two– will remain with a hand washing station from 7 am to 7 pm and a cleaner. This morning it is Randall. Showers are there from 9 to 1 pm. It appears the City is using all kinds of services to provide the toilets and showers to 3rd Ave. According to the City the toilets will be there 7 to 7, seven days a week. Today and tomorrow it will be Urban Alchemy serving people.

It is all rather confusing because they call themselves the clean team and are also picking up trash but they are not part of the Venice Bid Clean Team. This team cannot pick up hazardous waste, only trash. Meanwhile, there is no ADA compliance. Bulky item trash is stacked up at the north end of 3rd Ave at Rose and has been there since at least Thursday.

Photo was taken Monday, 16 March and has been this way since Thursday of last week. This is bulky item trash.

    Why do we have these public porta potties at our sidewalk encampments with clean up crews without masks and gloves? Seems to me if you want to have less exposure to Coronavirus you wouldn’t install these public porta potties on our sidewalks near these encampments! If you are exposed you would need a private restroom not a public one that would spread the disease. What was Councilmember Mike Bonin thinking? THESE PORTA POTTIES NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN NOW! https://i.imgur.com/MDGOXnc.jpg
