If you need a extended porta potty rental that is more than a day, weekend, or week, this guide will help you understand your options.
What is considered an Extended Rental?
A construction site is an example of an extended time where porta potties are necessary for a few, or even several months, while the construction workers are on the job.
If you are holding an event, like a county fair that extends over a couple of weeks, a long-term rental may be what you need.
Should you purchase a Porta Potty?
Owning a porta potty will require you to follow certain laws. You will need to take responsibility for arranging the removal of waste and cleaning the potty.
Renting relieves you of these responsibilities as the rental company has to remove waste, replenish supplies, and clean the potties on a regular basis. Maintenance and the is also their responsibility, should something need fixing. Once your event or need for porta potties is over, the rental company will remove them.
