CDU parliamentary group in Hamburg calls for an offensive against wild pinkers
The CDU parliamentary group calls for more public toilets in the city so that wild peeing can stop in the parks and in some parts of the city. The Senate, however, has a different opinion.
According to the CDU parliamentary group, there are too few public toilets in Hamburg’s green spaces and parks. After a small request from the CDU MPs André Trepoll and Sandrokap, the Senate announced that the city cleaning company operates 41 facilities. “Hamburg has a dense and reliable network of public, clean and hygienic toilets,” said the Senate.

Most of the facilities are also open during the corona pandemic. The rented kiosk toilet facilities, which were temporarily unusable due to the closure of the gastronomy, are an exception.
CDU: “It stinks a lot of hamburgers”
“It stinks many hamburgers, and therefore there is no reason at all for self-praise from the Senate,” said the CDU parliamentary group spokesman for the constitution and districts. Hamburg needs significantly more quiet places.
In addition, Trepoll criticized the fact that 40 toilet facilities can hardly be described as a dense offer for a metropolis like Hamburg. He cited wild peeing as an example in hotspots such as the Schanzenviertel or St. Pauli as well as in public places such as parks and green spaces.
