One of the less exciting aspects of planning an outdoor wedding and reception is deciding where guests will use the restroom. Unless there are public restrooms near your venue, you need to rent a portable toilet. Selecting the right toilets is not as easy a task as you might think. To help you make the right rental decisions, here are some questions to ask before contracting for portable toilets:
How Long Are Your Wedding and Reception?
The length of time for your wedding and reception might not seem like an important factor when you are deciding on portable toilets to rent, but it does matter. The longer your guests are there at the event, the more likely it is that everyone will need to use the restroom. The more people who are heading to the restroom, the greater the chance that there could be a long line of people waiting.
Inconveniencing your guests is avoidable if you have enough restrooms available. If your wedding and reception are going to be five hours or longer, consider renting at least one more portable toilet. The additional time could dramatically decrease the number of people waiting to use the restroom.
What Amenities Are Available?
Portable toilets have advanced far beyond the small boxes with a toilet and small sink. There are different models available and they have various amenities that could make the experience better for your guests.
For instance, instead of a portable toilet, you could restroom trailer. The amenities included in the trailer can vary, but your guests would have more room and the space would be more like a restroom at home. If you want to save money, you could ask for less expensive options, such as flushable toilets and lighting.
How Many People Are Attending?
Although it might seem like a no-brainer, some people forget to factor in the number of people who will be attending their wedding and reception into their toilet rental. There are several reasons that the number of guests matter, including determining how many toilets will be needed to rent.
In addition to helping decide the number of toilets, the number of guests impacts whether the toilets will need to be serviced before the day is over. For instance, if the toilet usually holds enough waste for 100 guests, but you have 200, the toilet might need to be serviced before the event is completed to avoid problems.Share

After we moved into a new house, I was pleased to see a recycling bin outside. The owners told me that the city had a thriving recycling program, but after we stared using the bins on our own we realized that we didn't know what we were doing. We quickly found that we were putting the wrong things in the bins, and that it didn't seem like we were seeing that much of a refund every month from our efforts. This blog is all about learning how to recycle properly and avoid problems with your sanitation company tied to recycling programs.
