Bylaw to ban auto-flush toilets
Aside from being the worst invention of all-time*, auto-flush toilets are also incredibly wasteful.
I estimate that an auto-flush goes off at least twice as often as it needs to. In the offices and malls where these devices are installed, that could mean a vast amount of wasted water.
An outright ban on these fixtures is not part of the Draft Greenest City Action Plan, however the efficient fixtures program and water auditing programs are areas in which this issue can be addressed.
I agree. They often flush too quickly resulting in the person using the toilet to have to flush once again. Maybe urinals work for this, but sit down toilets are most definitely inefficient when it comes to water consumption. What a waste of water!!!

Most modern toilets and urinals have a sensor to detect when a person is present, has done their business and left, then automatically flushes. No need for a bylaw, just a plumbing code.
Do you mean urinals????
