Are you in the process of planning a summer wedding or some other event? Will the event be held outdoors? When planning a wedding or any other similarly large outdoor event, there are a lot of things that must be taken into account. One thing that is easy to overlook but that is super important is where everyone will go when they need to use the restroom. If you've given it any thought at all, you're probably assuming that people can just use whatever facilities already exist at the location, but this isn't always a good idea. Some reasons why you should make other plans include:
Availability: Although the place where you're going to hold the event may already have restroom facilities, they may not be equipped to handle large numbers of people using them in one day. There may only be a few stalls available for use, meaning that the line to use the restroom will likely grow increasingly longer. If you haven't paid for extra portable restroom facilities to be brought in, the lack of viable places to relieve themselves may lead to your guests going elsewhere in search of facilities and possibly not coming back.
Cleanliness: Public restroom facilities, such as those found in a park, are notorious for not being clean. Besides often only being cleaned and restocked on an irregular basis, some people, especially teenagers, think that it is a fun "prank" to make a mess in these restrooms. Not only does this make the restroom look bad, but it may also use up all of the toilet paper so that there is none left for your guests to use. In contrast, a portable restroom is always cleaned, sanitized, and restocked before being sent out to an event. Instead of having to potentially deal with a mess, your guests will be able to use these facilities knowing that they are as clean as possible.
Accessibility: While there are rules and regulations in place for restroom facilities to be made handicap accessible, the reality is that the facilities might not actually be accessible. It's possible that there simply hasn't been a budget to update and modernize the restroom facilities. Even if they have been updated, the handicap stall may be the first and only one trashed simply because there is room inside for multiple people to do mischief at once. Fortunately, you can rent portable restroom facilities that have been created with handicap people in mind. They can be used by anyone, but they are first and foremost designed to allow access by wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility aids.
