FAQs About Portable Toilets
How many porta potties do I need for an event?
You should have at least one single-stall porta potty rental for every 75 guests for a four-hour event. If your event is twice as long, you will need twice as many restrooms. If you are serving alcohol, add 20% more restrooms. Additionally, your event should have one handwashing station for every four porta potties. Portable sinks or hand sanitizer stations are also required along with your portable toilet rental if your event includes food service.
How many porta potties do I need for my jobsite?
A good rule of thumb is to have one portable toilet for every ten workers for a 40 hour work week, and then increase the number of porta potty rentals as your workforce and work hours increase. For 20 workers, you will need two restrooms; 30 workers would need three restrooms, etc. However, if you are staffing for multiple shifts per week, you will need to rent a porta potty for each shift. For example, you'll need two restrooms for ten day-shift workers and ten workers on the night shift. Increase at this rate to ensure every ten workers on each shift gets one porta potty.
Do I need an ADA-accessible porta potty?
Do I need planning permission or a permit for a portable toilet?
You do not need a permit to set up a porta potty on your own property. However, if you want to set up a restroom on the street in front of your home or on any city block for an event, you will have to contact your city for permission.
