Portable toilets have come a long way: The early portable restrooms were made of wood, metal, and used deodorizers made from formaldehyde-based chemicals. Today, porta potties are well-built, comfortable, and cleaner than ever. They have fewer germs than escalator handrails, shopping carts, ATMs, elevator buttons, and playgrounds, to name a few!
With that being said, renting portable toilets or restroom trailers for large events in Nashville is not only a practical and a hygienic choice, but a required one. In fact, outdoor events including parades, sporting events, marathons, and political rallies are subject to regulations according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Here are a few common events that truly need portable toilet rentals!
Liberty Waste LLC guarantees customer satisfaction with every portable restroom by offering high-quality equipment, comfort, and convenience every time!
Races & Sporting Events
From 5Ks and marathons to sporting events and championship tournaments, if the event is outdoors and will be drawing athletes and fans alike, you will need portable toilets! Be sure to make accommodations that take youth, families, and those with disabilities into account. Situate the portable restrooms in areas like entrances, half-way points, and closeby to bleachers, to name a few places.
If your event is selling tickets, estimate the number of portable toilets based on the headcount and according to any bylaws that have restroom accessibility requirements.
Home Builds, Renovations, and Construction Projects
If you are a contractor, or you have hired a contractor for your home or business’ improvement project, renting a portable toilet(s) is a considerate gesture for both you and the workers. The portable restroom provides accessibility for those tackling the renovations, and it allows the residents or employees to go about their daily business. Large construction projects are in a league of their own when it comes to portable toilets.
From a business standpoint, portable restrooms also increase productivity. Quick-and-easy access to a restroom keeps workers on-site and on-task.
4th of July Celebrations, Festivals, and Fairs
Whether a city official, community leader, or the head of your family, if you are planning and hosting a get-together for the 4th of July at a local park or other public space, you will need to rent porta potties to accommodate the crowds! Over 42% (103 million) of Americans celebrating the Fourth of July attend a fireworks display or community party.
Porta potty rentals are also a smart idea for other celebrations that involve food, beer, and hours spent outdoors, such as festivals and fairs. Be sure to plan ahead and rent portable restrooms as well as handicap restrooms and portable sinks.
A general rule of thumb is to have one portable toilet for every 50 people. But if there is alcohol involved, the number of toilets should be one for every 40 to 45 people.
Open House Events and Home Showings
Believe it or not, it is not uncommon for real estate agents and homeowners to rent a portable toilet for an open house event or frequent home showings.
One reason is, if the home is vacant, the plumbing may not even be connected. On another note, renting a toilet ensures that the home’s restrooms do not have to be cleaned in-between showings – and that there won’t be any plumbing issues due to a potential homebuyer taking a pitstop!
