An App for Toilets

The Ministry of Housing and Local Government has recently introduced the MyWC application to help the public locate toilets throughout the country.

According to the Deputy Minister of Housing and Local Government, Senator Datuk Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad Baharuddin Shah, the application allows users to access information about Malaysia’s public toilets in terms of grades and charges.

Users can also get information about related facilities available such as disabled-friendly toilets and diaper-changing rooms.

“In order to have a functional application, the Ministry has surveyed 2620 public toilets belonging to local councils throughout the country to obtain the required data.

People can now download the application. Hopefully, it’ll benefit everyone in finding the best toilets in Malaysia,” he said.

The Deputy Minister said so during a media conference after officiating World Toilet Day and launching the MyWc application at Stadium Indera Mulia, Ipoh on Saturday, January 26.

Present were the Executive Councillor for Housing, Local Government, Public Transport, Non-Islamic Affairs and New Villages, Paul Yong Choo Kiong, Director-General Department of Local Government, Datuk Noor Ihsan Che Mat and Ipoh City Council Secretary, Zakuan Zakaria.

Before officiating the launch, a prize-giving ceremony to acknowledge winners of the Best Toilet Competition 2019 was held.
