Public toilets in Huddersfield and Dewsbury look set to close in eight weeks time.
But Kirklees Council said volunteers still have time to save a number of public toilets.
Kirklees Council has confirmed that its attended toilets in Albion Street, Huddersfield, Holmfirth and Longcauseway, Dewsbury, will close in autumn.
And they say volunteer groups stepping forward to take them on will be the only way to keep the toilets open beyond October.
A decision to cut the funding for public toilets was made at Full Council earlier this year as the council faced having to agree cuts of £21m.
Kirklees agreed a budget for half the year to give time for the community or business groups to work on plans to take over them.
Clr Nigel Patrick, Holme Valley South Conservative, said he was optimistic the toilets in Holmfirth could be saved.
He said: “Talks are ongoing with two parties who are going to work together.
“I won’t name them yet but they’re having meetings with Kirklees officers to sort out an interim licence with a view to an asset transfer in due course.
“I’m optimistic, there is a process that has to be done but positive steps have been made.”
A Kirklees Council spokeswoman confirmed the toilets will close from October.
“As one of a number of budget saving measures the council has withdrawn funding for the attended public toilets in Huddersfield, Holmfirth and Dewsbury from October 2014 and this will save approximately £150,000 per year.
“We are actively seeking assistance from volunteer groups but the toilets will close on October 1 unless any group or organisation comes forward with a proposal for their continued operation at no cost to the council.
“Huddersfield has alternative public toilet provision in the market hall and at the bus station. There are also a number of shops, cafes and licensed premises within the town centre that have toilet facilities.”
