Love your loo
There are two main types of toilets in use - the tardis-style portable toilets, and the 'long drop' toilets. The portable toilets – almost 3,000 of them! - are self-contained flushing toilets. The 'long drop' toilets are lockable, open air stalls positioned above a large pit.
Portable toilets become blocked quickly when they are not flushed. Please flush before and after each use. The flush systems is a lever located the next to the seat.
Additionally, there are a small number of trailer-mounted ‘deluxe’ toilets available for those who just can't do without the real thing! In the Sacred Space there are also the Water Aid latrine-style toilets.
Each toilet block has handwashing facilities and many have hand sanitiser dispensers - please use them.
There are more than 700 metres of urinals dotted around the site - including the lovingly decorated female urinals which are staffed by WaterAid.
Facilities have increased and improved considerably over the last few years. The Festival employs 300 on-site loo cleaners who ensure the toilets are cleaned at least once a day. The busiest toilets blocks have dedicated cleaning teams 24 hours a day.
A team of Environmental Health students check all the toilet and water points twice a day and report any problems immediately.
Please leave all toilets as you'd wish to find them, and consider others. Toilet rolls are available free of charge from Property Lockups and from Information Points.
Please do not pee in the hedges, ditches or streams on the Festival site. The urine runs-off into the waterways and causes terrible pollution which endangers not only the local wildlife, but also the future of Glastonbury Festival. The Festival has already been prosecuted and environmental issues remain the biggest threat to the continuation of the Festival.
