American city, Seattle has put five of its self-cleaning toilets on eBay starting at $89,000 each. Reasons cited for the sale include that they have been used by drug dealers and prostitutes. The cost-effectiveness has also been called into question.
The toilets were installed in 2004 and cost around $5m. Features include an emergency services button, automatic doors and graffiti resistant walls. As of yet the luxurious toilets have received no bids.
