Designer public toilets 2.0
Free. Self-cleaning. Environmentally smart.
JCDecaux designs and delivers public toilets entirely free of charge to 14 cities throughout Sweden. The toilets are free to use for everybody. Here at ToaSverige you can see the locations of our toilets and the current status of each toilet. Just select your city in the menu below and click on the map for more information about each toilet. Welcome!
Every city and every location has its own unique characteristics, which is why we offer and deliver a range of different toilet models. The appearance of each type of toilet can be adapted in terms of colours and materials.
JCDecaux’s public toilets don’t involve any costs for the city council or the taxpayers. They are also free to use for everybody. The toilets are financed via outdoor advertising sold by JCDecaux at other locations in the city where the toilets are installed. The toilets are always free from advertising. 100% of the costs associated with the toilets are borne by JCDecaux, including all operating and maintenance costs.
At what times are the toilets open?
The majority of our toilets are open 24/7/365. There are a few exceptions, for example the toilet at Smedsuddsbadet in Stockholm, which is only open during the summer period. Individual toilets may also be temporarily closed at night due to vandalism.
The toilet is broken/dirty – who should I contact?

Could I end up being locked in the toilet?
No, this cannot happen. A user is only allowed to occupy a toilet for a maximum of 20 minutes, after which the door opens automatically.
How do I lock the toilet door?
All of our toilets lock automatically when you enter and close the door. In our wheelchair-accessible toilets you push the “open” button when you wish to exit the toilet. In our standard toilets you simply use the door handle.
Why is a toilet closed?
The most common reason for closing a toilet is that the toilet has been vandalised and is in need of major repairs. It could be a case of everyday vandalism, homeless people who are using the toilet as somewhere to stay, or organised crime in the form of theft of components needed to operate the toilet. Graffiti is a common problem, although the toilets don’t usually need to be closed for this reason, as the graffiti can usually be removed quickly.
What does a toilet cost?
The cost of installing a new toilet is significant. However, the greatest costs associated with a toilet are the ongoing maintenance costs. 100% of the costs are borne by JCDecaux, including all operating and maintenance costs.
What does self-cleaning actually mean?
After each visit, the floor and toilet seat are cleaned with disinfectant cleaner. This happens automatically between visits. The sensors ensure that the toilet is empty before the cleaning process begins.
Can I get a toilet installed in my city?
All of JCDecaux’s toilets can be installed in municipalities where we have a collaboration agreement. If you would like more information, please contact Micael Nilsson, our Director of Business Development.
How are the toilets financed?
The toilets are financed via outdoor advertising sold by JCDecaux in the cities where the toilets are installed.
Is it free to use the toilets?
Yes! All our toilets are free to use for everybody.
