FAQs about Portable Toilets
How many porta potties do I need for an event?
- You should have at least one porta potty 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 required 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 10 workers for a 40 hour work week, and then increase the number of porta potties as your workforce and work hours increase. For 20 workers, you will have two restrooms, 30 workers would need three restrooms and so on. But if you are staffing for multiple shifts per week, each shift will need its own restroom. You'll need two restrooms for 10 day-shift workers and 10 workers on the night shift. If you are staffing a third shift, you will need a third restroom. Increase at this standard to ensure every 10 workers on each shift gets one porta potty.
Do I need an ADA-accessible porta potty?
- If your event is open to the public, you should have at least one ADA-accessible restroom. If your event is large, you need an ADA portable restroom for every 20 standard portable toilets.
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.
