How many restrooms do I need?

Generally the rule is one regular single unit for every 50-75 people for a 4-6 hour event where a meal is being served. There are many factors to be considered when deciding the number of toilets required since alcohol consumption, and the ratio of male to female guests changes the equation. Also fairs, festivals, and outdoor events taking place over several days have temporary and transient crowds with perhaps peak attendance at 3000 at any one given time. While the entire festival may see crowds of up to 5000 people, event coordinators may not necessarily require 50 toilets. If you are organizing an event with thousands of attendants, then an in-depth review of quantities is required. We’re the experts. Contact us and we’d be happy to figure it all out for you!

Am I renting the toilets you see on a construction site?

We have a wide range of units for rental, including units equipped with vanity mirrors, lights, running hot water, and space for flowers, and pot pourri. We can also rent units that are similar to the plastic portable toilets you’d see in a park or on a construction site. Our special event toilets do not go out to construction sites; they’re designated for special events only.

(Based on University of Minnesota and the Portable Sanitation Association research)

• A portable toilet generally has a capacity to service 400 uses.
• Most people use the washroom every 2 – 3 hours.
• If you have 2000 people, using the unit 4 times a day, the math says 20 units. However, you may have a line-up problem at peak times (before or after a concert, or after a meal.)
• Men take approximately 2 minutes in the washroom, Women take twice as long. So, if you have the units gender labeled, take this into consideration (designate every 2 out of 3 as ladies’)
• Have the sinks placed outside of the units if possible to alleviate line-ups.
• Provide garbage receptacles so that all those water and beer bottles don’t end up in the toilet.
