This historic bulletin, written for use by local housing managers, describes the problems involved with operating central tenant laundry facilities and potential solutions to these problems. The publication discusses information gathered via a survey of 272 tenants and staff in 35 developments that operate group laundry facilities including wash rooms and drying yards. The problems reported by respondents were consistent across developments and regions. One of the surveyed housing projects was a war housing development.
