TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – Trenton’s Health Department could shut down some city buildings if a toilet paper shortage isn’t resolved soon.
“It could be an inconvenience for anybody, young, old, male, female,” said Maryann Wooten of Hamilton Township.
The toilet paper and paper towel supply for at least 11 buildings, including City Hall, are dangerously low.
“We have one box with about 15 rolls of toilet paper and that’s it,” acting Public Works Director Harold Hall said.
Hall says a City Council resolution to order more paper supplies, including paper cups, was voted down. Some council members didn’t think the cash-strapped city needed to buy the cups.
Toilet paper crisis averted in New Jersey's capital city
Police, firefighters and other Trenton city workers down to their last sheets as the result of a City Council budget battle were rescued late Tuesday by animal rights advocates who offered six months of free rolls printed with a message about filthy slaughterhouses and the resulting fecal matter found in meat.
PETA's offer of a free six-month supply came with the condition that each sheet would read, "Slaughterhouses are so filthy that more than half of all meat is contaminated with fecal bacteria."
