Memorial Day 2019 is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about the porta potty rentals you’re going to need if you’re hosting the festivities. From large outdoor festivals to small family gatherings, Memorial Day events hold a special place in the hearts of a lot of people.
As the planner of these events, you want your guests to enjoy themselves. Providing adequate facilities is vital to their enjoyment, so be sure to book your order as early as possible.
How Many Portable Toilets Do I Need?
Not providing enough portable toilets for the length of time and number of people attending is a sure-fire way to sabotage the success of your event. The number of units you’ll need depends on a few different factors.
- How many people will be attending?
- How long will the event last?
- Will there be alcohol or food?
A good rule of thumb is to have at least one porta potty for every 100 guests. However, if your event is to last for several hours or a few days, you may want to consider doubling that number.
If alcohol or food is to be served at your Memorial Day celebration, plan to increase the number of portable toilets by 15-20 percent.
Aside from porta-potties, you’ll also want to consider providing other amenities for your guests.
- There should be at least one handicapped-accessible unit for every 20 regular restrooms.
- Portable toilets in food areas should include at least one handwashing station per four units.
