What should I know about portable toilets?

Things to Consider Before Renting Portable Toilets


Portable toilets are a great option for construction site, outdoor public areas as well as large family get-togethers at home during the summer months. Construction businesses and public facilities already know the benefits of renting portable toilets, but homeowners are also finding that renting portable toilets saves on the traffic running in and out of the house during such things as a barbecues, graduation parties and other events. They also prevent lines forming at the available indoor toilets. However, there are some things to consider before renting portable toilets.

Portable Toilet Delivery: Be certain the delivery personnel and trucks have access to the spot where portable toilets will be dropped off. Areas where portable toilets can be temporarily placed need to be level and solid. Lawn areas may be damaged slightly if a toilet is placed there but should grow back without issue if not left in place too long. Extended rentals should be placed on gravel, concrete or paved areas.

Portable Toilet Pickup: Get a definite pickup date for the portable toilets. No need to pay rental fees for days after a party, event or season is over. Make sure contracts clearly indicate when rental fees cease even if the toilets cannot be picked up on the last day they are needed.

Portable Toilet Maintenance: The company renting the portable toilets should be able to estimate how often an extended rental needs to be serviced by the amount of people expected daily. A concert may need to have a large number of portable toilets rented to prevent overflows. Extended rentals in public parks may need serviced at a different rate depending on where the toilets are placed. Ones at large pavilions or swimming areas may need serviced more often. Depending on the reason a homeowner would have a portable toilet, the maintenance times can vary.

Local Ordinances: The toilet renting company should be familiar with any local ordinances concerning the placement or required maintenance schedule for rented portable toilets at private homes and other areas. Some localities have ordinances that define everything from the times they can be delivered to requiring portable toilets at places such as construction sites.

Portable toilets offer a hygienic method for the public to use where no permanent structure, water or sewer line access is available. They are self-contained units that give privacy, and waste is chemically treated as it is deposited. Companies that rent portable toilets can deliver from one unit to hundreds when needed on short notice. Any location where the public or workers are going to gather outdoors needs access to toileting facilities. Portable toilets make it possible to have toilet facilities even in remote locations.
