If you have a special event that you are putting on and you need extra toilets for the event, you can rent portable toilets for the event. Before you put in your order for portable toilets, you are going to want to determine what type of handwashing station you want, how many handicap and family-friendly restrooms you need, and your expected attendance count.
When you host an event, you don't want to just provide people with a place to go to the bathroom; you also want to make sure that you provide them with ample opportunity to sanitize and stay clean.
Although even the most basic portable toilets come with a hand sanitizer dispenser, there is no substitute for hot water and soap when it comes to cleaning your hands. Hand sanitizer dispensers also don't help you really clean up when you get something on your hands or spill something on yourself.
Consider renting handwashing stations that come with water or that can hook up to a local water dispenser. This is especially important if you are serving food at your event or if people are likely to get dirty at your event. Having a hand washing station can make your event feel more sophisticated as well as sanitary.
Handicap & Family Restrooms
Whenever you hold a public event, you need to make sure that you have handicap-accessible restrooms on the premises. If you are just adding restrooms to an existing event space, you may not need to rent handicap-accessible bathrooms. However, if you are holding a concert in a field without access to other bathrooms, you are going to need to rent some handicap-accessible restrooms.
Also, think about who will be attending your event and who your target audience is. For example, if you are putting on a family fair or a soccer tournament, you are likely to have families with young children at your event. If families with young children at your event are a possibility, be sure to provide some family-style restrooms. Family-style portable restrooms are larger restrooms that allow a parent and their young children to use the restroom together.
It is always a good idea, regardless of your target audience, to have at least one bathroom with a changing table for individuals with infants.
Size of Your Event
When you set up your rental, be sure to let the portable toilet company know the length of your event and the expect number of attendees at your event. This will help them give you an accurate estimate on how many toilets you should rent. For example, one toilet for an event with 200 people is going to leave you with a long line at the restroom. The company you rent the portable toilets from will be able to ensure that you don't have long lines at your event for the restroom.
