How Many Porta Potty Rentals Do You Need?
A big factor when determining price is how many units you need and how long you will need them.
The industry standard is that one unit should satisfy an event with 50 guests. However, that is more of a guideline than a rule. Just to be on the safe side, we recommend one porta potty for every 35 guests at an all-day event. It’s also worth noting that any event that serves food or beverages can expect a facility usage increase of about 30-40% and should be accounted for when selecting the right number of units for your special event. If your event is shorter or isn’t serving food, you can likely get away with one porta potty for every 40 guests. Last but not least, we will give a discounted rate for having multiple units on site and for longer periods of time because it cuts down on transportation costs for service, delivery, and pickup.
Types Of Porta Potty RENTALS Needed
The unit type you choose will also play a role in determining the porta potty rental cost. We offer a variety of porta potty rentals ranging from standard restrooms, deluxe restrooms, flushing restrooms, restroom trailers, and more.
Some portable toilets are more appropriate for construction sites or athletic events like standard portable toilets or deluxe porta potties. While weddings, graduations, and other special events that require an added touch of class and comfort we recommend the flushing restrooms or restroom trailers.
Do you need ADA restrooms for guests with disabilities?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires, at a minimum, 5% and no less than one handicap-access unit in each porta potty location so that attendees with disabilities can have proper accommodations. For those situations, we offer the ADA compliant restroom, or for more basic needs we offer simple wheelchair accessible units.
OSHA or ANSI Compliance for Portable Restrooms
Do you need ANSI or OSHA compliant restrooms to meet with construction site standards? OSHA, in particular, requires the following number of restroom facilities per number of employees:
- # employees: 20 or less
- Minimum # of facilities: 1
- # of employees: 20 - 200
- Minimum # of facilities: 1 toilet seat and 1 urinal per 40 workers.
- # of employees: 200+
- Minimum # of facilities: 1 toilet seat and 1 urinal per 50 workers.
Porta Potty Service Intervals
Ongoing sanitation, cleaning, refilling, and general upkeep is also a critical factor when determining the cost of your rental. This process includes:
- Refilling the rechargeable antibacterial dispenser
- Urinal and interior wall sanitation
