Fairfield City Council has installed two new automated self-cleaning public toilets at Canley Vale Town Centre and Cabravale Memorial Park.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the provision of clean public toilets was an essential service for the community.


“The new toilets will have a high level of cleanliness with an automated self-cleaning cycle, as well as the normal cleaning service conducted by Council,” Mayor Carbone said.


“The Canley Vale facility is part of a partnership between Fairfield City Council and Transport for NSW for the construction of the multi-storey car park.


“The modern toilet facility is the final element of the car park, which is providing parking for commuters and shoppers. It will be open from 5am to 11pm, seven days a week.


The second facility opening is at Cabravale Memorial Park. Both toilet facilities will be open from tomorrow.


Some benefits of the automated self-cleaning public toilets are:


• Safe and clean for the public

• Electronic doors with automated locking and unlocking features

• Toilet flushing automatically operated when the unit is vacated as well as manual flushing

• Automated seat and floor wash with drying at pre-arranged times 

• Timed occupation which minimises the potential for vandalism 

• An almost ‘touch-less’ environment to aid user hygiene


Other sites where Fairfield City Council has already installed automated self-cleaning toilets for the community are: 


• Cabramatta Railway Station

• Canley Heights Shopping Centre

• Fisher Street Car Park

• Fairfield Town Centre

• Fairfield Heights Town Centre

• Horsley Park Village

• Endeavour Sports Park, Fairfield West

• Downey Lane Multi-Storey Car Park, Fairfield

As part of the 2017/18 - 2020/21 Delivery Program, Council will deliver up to two automated self-cleaning toilets each year at locations across the City.
