Planning a large outdoor gathering at your local park is a great way to get friends and family together and enjoy the cool weather and beautiful foliage this fall. With playgrounds to keep kids busy and plenty of space to toss a frisbee or play touch football, a party in the park is a sure way to keep everyone entertained. It’s also an ideal location to hold a reunion or celebrate an anniversary without “breaking the bank”. City parks offer picnic areas to host lunches and scenic views to enjoy, but don’t always have an abundance of bathrooms available to the public. If you notice there aren’t enough restrooms on site, you will definitely need to make a small investment in an outside bathroom rental. Here are some things to consider when renting a porta potty for a party in the park this autumn.
Be sure to take into consideration how many guests will be attending your outdoor event and factor in beverage consumption. Our VIP Flushing Toilet is a popular option with a hands-free flushing tank and sink. If young children or the elderly will be in attendance, a more spacious and comfortable interior is recommended, making the 203 cu. foot, Handicap Portable Toilet a perfect solution.
Plan a path for delivery. The trucks that deliver the portable restrooms need access to the drop-off location. You may find the perfect place to arrange the toilets, but if a tree is blocking the entry way the truck won’t able to deliver the units. Find a location that the trucks can easily get to for drop off, clean up, and removal.
Where you place your outside bathroom rental is key. A solid ground, that is also level, is an ideal location to place portable toilets. Measure the area to ensure there is enough room to fit the number of units your party requires. If your event continues into the evening, see about placing it in a well-lit area, or you can always purchase temporary lighting solutions.
Make sure to check the weather and have a backup plan for rain. Supplying overhead coverage, such as a portable canopy, will not only provide shelter from the rain, but the sun as well. A shaded area would be your best option to place the portable toilets to avoid excess heat during warmer months.
Find out if you need permission from your city. Contact your local government to find out if there are any restrictions on having a porta potty on public property. You may need to pull a permit to get permission to have the portable toilet at the park. Having flexibility around your drop-off and pick-up days can help save on additional charges.
Keep your outside bathroom rentals secure. Make sure you lock up the toilets when they are not in use, especially if they are being left in a public area overnight.
