Addressing Common Misconceptions About Portable Toilets

  • They are unsanitary and smelly. This might be true without proper maintenance. However, keeping portable toilets clean is simple to do, and you might be surprised at how effective deodorizers are. In addition, we’ll deliver the portable toilets to you clean and fully sanitized. If you need some tips about how to keep them that way, we’re here to help.
  • They are harmful to the environment. Portable toilets are actually environmentally friendly in several ways. For instance, they use far less water than a traditional residential toilet, since they don’t require flushing. They are also set up for proper waste disposal to ensure that untreated human waste won’t end up in nearby waterways or spread diseases to wildlife.
  • They don’t allow you to wash your hands. Modern portable toilets usually come with handwashing or sanitizing stations that will allow everyone to keep their hands clean before they continue with their day.
  • You only need a couple of them. The number of portable toilets you need really depends on how many people are in the area. For instance, one or two toilets should be fine for 20 people or less, but you’ll need more if the group is larger than that.
