How many portable toilets do you need?

This, of course, depends on the size of the event. For parties with 500 guests or less could get away with a couple of stalls whereas larger festivals could need over 100!

If you’re unsure how many portable toilets to have for your event, it’s best to overestimate. It’s always better to have a couple extra stalls than long lines of uncomfortable guests.

Who do you choose for your porta potty rental?

It’s important to hire a top-notch rental company so you can rest assured that they will take care of the portable toilets and everything is sanitary.

If your event goes on for more than 1 day, you’ll want to make sure the company comes in each night to pump and clean each stall. There’s nothing worse than an overflowing portable toilet!

Porta potty placement tips

When deciding where to place your porta potties, you’ll want to look up the local sanitation codes and make sure you know they won’t block emergency vehicles. Make sure to know about any codes or regulations about portable toilets well in advance to make sure there are no surprises later.

Another tip is to make sure you have at least one handicap-accessible stall. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA),  handicap stall measurements must have at least 30 inches by 48 inches of floor space to accommodate at least a 60-inch diameter turning space for a wheelchair.

Also, don’t put your portable toilets next to where people eat because the smell could dampen their appetites.
