When your guests are attending your event, whether it be a race, concert, or wedding, the last thing they want to do is stand in line for the bathroom. At the same time, planning an outdoor event is complicated for a coordinator who does not know exactly what they need. Even the bathroom situation may present a challenge.
If you are planning an event, the key is to pay close attention to the guest experience. Bathrooms are a significant part of the experience your guests have at your event. Read on to learn more about the steps you can take to improve guest experience with portable toilets.
Increase Your Portable Toilet Order
One of the best things you can do about your restroom situation is to discuss the perfect number of toilets with the company you are renting toilets from. Nationwide Waste Service has experience renting portable restrooms for events like yours throughout the United States.
You might also consider investing in higher quality bathrooms. For example, you might invest in a portable toilet trailer rather than on individual units. The number of toilets you need also depends on the type of event, specifically if there are times when most people will be trying to use a bathroom at the same time. For instance, you might have a sudden influx of restroom-goers during a concert after the openers play but not if you are renting toilets for an arts and crafts fair. Additionally, you need to increase your bathroom presence if your event is drink-centered. If you have a beer or wine festival, you may need more toilets than if you are hosting a craft fair. Number of units required when no pumping service is provided based on 50/50 mix of men & women. One unit provides approximately 200 uses with 4 hours between use.
Place Toilets Efficiently
Placement of your portable toilets is critical. Your guests do not want to drink and eat near the bathrooms, but you also want to ensure they are centrally located and accessible. One way to reduce the impact of long lines is to put your toilets away from crowds. You might also consider arranging them in a U-shape rather than in one line facing attendees. The U-shape encourages lines in which the first person can see the available toilets when people exit. Next, create a natural line for your guests. You might use ropes to guide the course of the line to ensure it wraps around effectively without getting into the event space. Placing toilets throughout the area is beneficial if your event is quite large. For example, you want to place toilets throughout a race to ensure guests have easy access to toilets. Signage is also helpful to prevent guests from getting lost.
