It Pays (Literally!) to Use the Public Toilet in India

Officials in Musiri, a remote town in Tamil Nadu, India, came up with a novel scheme to get people to stop urinating on the street: pay them to use the public toilet!

Dozens of people are queuing up to use toilets in Musiri, a remote town in Tamil Nadu state, where authorities are succeeding in keeping street corners clean with the new scheme. [...]

The poor of Musiri, are earning upto a dollar a month and very happy to keep the street corners clean.

Why don't they just put out some buckets? It'd still be public urination but at least you could empty the bucket, easier then scrubbing the walls.
