I was at an all-day seminar at Edith Cowan University (Mt Lawley Campus) in Perth, Western Australia on Saturday. This notice was behind every door in the ladies’ toilets close to our seminar room. I wonder what event(s) prompted someone to make this sign…. Ewww!



  1. Hi Rhonda
    A culturally sensitive question.
    Cheers, kc

  2. The reason for this is that in many less developed nations in Latin America and Asia the toilets are not designed to flush toilet paper so there is a container in many toilets where the used toilet paper is deposited to be disposed of later.

  3. Yeah, I figured that was the reason. ECU is very multicultural.

  4. Yes, I’ve seen this in parts of Asia. I just haven’t seen such a sign in an Australian toilet before.
