Winter Festival Portable Restroom Rental Tips

The holidays are upon us and the events and festivals go strong throughout the rest of the year. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are full of all sorts of large gatherings for celebration. These outdoor holiday events attract large groups of people. Most outdoor locations either don’t have restrooms or they do not have enough to support larger gatherings.

One part of winter festival planning is thinking of the portable restrooms you will need to help meet the demand. The sanitation needs of large gatherings can be easily overlooked, but it can mean a less successful event. If people need to wait too long or leave to use the facilities it reduces participation. Having enough portable restrooms at your events means cleaner, safer, and more successful winter events.

There are loads of holiday festivals in Arizona that need to include portable restrooms in their event planning. From the different festival of lights, to ice skating, and all of the other great holiday activities basic sanitation is a key to having the best events and growing events year after year.

Portable Restroom Tips

The first step in planning is thinking about the type of event you are planning, what the expected turn out will be, and other basic demographic type information. Here is a list of considerations to help you ge the right type, and amount of portable restrooms.

What is the expected turnout?

Clearly how many people attend will dictate how much sanitation you will need. Base your estimates off of previous years or buffer your estimates if you are establishing new events.

How many days and hours per day will the event go for?

If the event is going to go for a longer period of time there is a chance that you will need to consider having the portable restrooms switched out so they can be emptied, cleaned, and prepped for another day.

Does the event appeal to more women than men?

Women’s hygiene can sometimes take a little more time and require the addition of waste baskets for feminine products. Compensating for events that appeal primarily to women will help keep up with the demand.

Will alcohol be served at the event?

It’s a well known fact that events that include alcohol have a greater demand for available restrooms. Make sure that your festivities stay clean, safe, and have enough restrooms for the party.

Should I have sinks or hand sanitizers?

Depending on the type of area you have sinks are usually a great way to offer your guests a place to sanitize their hands and fight germs. If you are going to have an event where freezing is a potential hand sanitizers are a good alternative.

Will my guests expect luxury portable restrooms?

Some events attract a demographic of our population that know and expect the finer things. These guests are well aware that there are luxury portable restroom trailers that have all the comfort and amenities of home. Be aware of your guests and offer them the comfort they will expect.

Putting Information To Work

Once you have answers to all of the questions above you will have the information you need to contact a portable restroom booking specialist. They will discuss the size of the event, the days and hours, and exactly what type and how many of portable restrooms you will need. They will also help you make sure you have enough ADA handicap accessible portable restrooms. This makes sure that everyone is welcome.

 

Emergency Restrooms

Emergency Restrooms

None of us want to think about or imagine the worst happening in our communities. But nature’s harsher elements do rear their ugly head now and again. Coupled with wildfires and other disasters, having a solid plan in place at the federal, state, county, and community level means the difference between order and potential chaos.

Why Are Portable Restrooms Important In Disasters?

Planning for the lavatory needs might seem like an unnecessary detail, but given the conditions during disasters it is an integral part of planning. Large concentrations of people flock to higher ground, or disaster shelters. Depending the type of disaster and the severity people that are displaced might have to stay for hours, days, or even weeks. Having enough facilities for the crowd to relieve themselves is a big part of keeping everyone healthy. Portable restrooms are a big part of providing enough restroom facilities for large groups of people, at the drop of a hat.  Most reputable portable restroom suppliers also have shower trailers that can be supplied to disaster shelter sites.

Not only the people directly affected by the disaster benefit from the portable restrooms and better organization. The people in emergency services and volunteers will be better able to do their jobs if they have proper facilities. This includes shower facilities. Many times emergency workers come from distances that are impractical to commute from. Many don’t feel comfortable leaving until everyone is helped and end up sleeping on site as well. Having a portable shower trailer is a great way to keep your emergency staff clean, healthy, and ready for all of the challenges that might face them.

Handicap And Injured Considerations

Unfortunately there is bound to be some injuries in disasters and including portable restrooms that are ADA compliant will help you accommodate not only the handicapped, but people with injuries. These portable restrooms include more than a ramp and turning radius inside. They also feature bars to help maneuver. ADA approved portable restrooms also feature non-slip surfaces, easy flush features, paper towel dispensers that are the correct height, ADA compliant porcelain sinks, and 36” entry doors. All of these features ensure that the needs of everyone are addressed.

Disaster Preparation and Immediate Response

Portable restroom suppliers offer emergency response services. This way they can always be ready when the worst ends up happening. Some portable restroom companies can even be placed on a retainer. This not only reduces cost but means that emergency service is immediate. Many times the portable restrooms can be delivered within 24-48 hours.


Setting Up Emergency Portable Restroom Services

Shower Trailers

Many of us love going to festivals and enjoying events we are passionate about with like minded souls. Some of these events take place over a stretch of several days, which is where we will focus on this entry. Over the course of a multi-day event, hygiene becomes more and more of a concern with each passing day. If you have been to one of the bigger multi day events, you have seen people come down sick or just get very dirty as the festival progressed. This potentially means many sick and stinky people in close proximity for extended periods of time.

One solution to hygiene concerns at extended festivals is shower trailers. Having a fleet of clean and spacious shower trailers available for festival goers and campers can all but eliminate any of the hygiene concerns at any festival, so long as the crowd is willing to utilize the showers, which they inevitably will. Everybody feels better when they are clean and presentable, it just feels good. Having your festival goers in higher spirits will only enhance your event and how much fun everyone will have. If a promoter gains a reputation throwing fun, creative, and hygienic festivals they stand to leave the competition behind. Many people avoid these types of events due to the perception that they are ‘dirty’ and ‘havens for illness.’ These sentiments lead many to believe that, while the festival looks very tempting it just won’t be worth dealing with the downside that comes with it. Those days will be behind you as soon as you decide to outfit your event with clean and convenient restroom and shower trailers.
