I work on Degraves St. and I know people often do #1 and sometimes #2 in the alley just off of Degraves St. (Degraves Pl?) as well as littering it with countless cigarette butts. There is a camera mounted on the back of a building there but this does not seem to deter people from relieveing themselves there. When someone is in need of a leak and they are drunk almost any alley, rubbish bin, or secluded doorway will do. This is probably true for most inner city areas in the world.

I hardly find it a wonder that the alleyways are covered in piss. The city is frequently full of people at night, while they are drinking. Yet public toilets are next to no where to be found. The few public toilets that do still exist in the CBD are locked by about 9pm.

Presumably every licensed place where people are drinking should have toilets.

Ah, there’s a few public toilets open 24 hours, but you may have to hunt around to find them… Check http://www.toiletmap.gov.au/ – which now has a mobile site and an iPhone app!
