Suggestions For Unit Quantity / Portable Toilet Rental in New York

HOW MANY UNITS WILL I NEED FOR MY EVENT?

There’s much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line. Proper planning is the key to successful special events. Studies  indicate that adequate restroom facilities have a significant influence  on attendance and profitability. Tables 10 and 28 from the Sanitarian  & Health Official Guide & Portable Restroom Requirements at  Special Events & Crowd Gatherings, University of Missouri-St. Louis,  are guides in determining the number of sanitation units that will be  required.

Under normal conditions, most people will use sanitation facilities  once every four hours. Each portable sanitation unit should accommodate a  maximum of 200 persons. Weather conditions and the consumption of food,  liquids, beer and other alcoholic beverages will increase usage by 30%  to 40%. Your local portable sanitation service contractor’s experience  will help you in planning properly for any event. During large events  requiring more than 10 units for more than one day, it is recommended  that a service technician be on standby duty at the event. This enables  the toilet contractor to adequately handle any sanitation problem that  may arise.

This hypothetical example illustrates how good sanitation planning can impact a special event.

Assumptions:

  1. There are 10,000 attendees at an event
  2. The sponsor budgets $6,000 for toilet facilities
  3. Each attendee spends $3.00/hour at the event   

The average cost for toilet facilities is 60¢/attendee. If  the average attendee is satisfied with the cleanliness, availability and  absence of long lines to use the portable sanitation units, he/she will  be willing to use the units and thus stay at the event longer. If  each attendee lengthens his/her visit by only 12 minutes, the additional  gross revenue to the event sponsors will pay the cost of furnishing  portable sanitation units.

Good planning for sanitation at special events pays! A satisfied customer will stay longer, spend more money, and return next year. Your portable sanitation contractor can advise you on availability of handwashing units and special handicapped facilities.
