Myth busting the common misconceptions about portable toilet hire

06 June 2022

When organising an outdoor community event, you will come across a host of misinformation that has developed around the portable toilet hire industry over the years. In this article we myth bust the most common misconceptions around.

The mere mention of portable toilets can have some people running for the hills and the chances are that their opinions of them have been formed by listening to others, rather than from firsthand experience. Here’s our list of the most common misconceptions we have heard.

Portable toilets are harmful to the environment

Of all the misconceptions surrounding portable toilet hire, this is the furthest from the truth and hiring portable toilets helps organisers to reduce the carbon footprint of their event. Our luxury toilet trailers feature a flushing system that uses less water than a domestic, plumbed-in toilet and all supplied consumables are environmentally-friendly. As registered waste carriers licenced by the Environment Agency, we remove all waste and transport it for ethical disposal.

Portable toilets are unhygienic

Many people believe that portable toilets are unhygienic and smelly but that is completely untrue! We understand the importance of exceptional hygiene standards and whether you are hiring a plastic portable toilet or a luxury portable toilet, all are units are steam cleaned prior to being hired out. We offer a regular cleaning service for longer hire periods but of course if you need this to be carried out more often, that can easily be arranged. To maintain the ongoing interior hygiene of our luxury toilet trailers, we also offer an attendant service and to provide a better user experience for your event guests, all our luxury toilet units have hot and cold running water and are supplied with luxury soap, paper towels and hand moisturiser.

Portable toilets are unsightly

The endless rows of blue plastic boxes lined up at festivals and on construction sites have long gone, to be replaced with smart, grey, individual cubicles and modern luxury trailers. We have the largest fleet on the market, made up of modern, luxury toilet units perfect for the most high-end of events.

All portable toilets are too small

This begs the question ‘too small for what?’ Our single occupancy plastic portable toilet has a roomy interior measuring 1.16m in width, large enough to accommodate the toilet, a fresh-water, foot-operated basin, soap dispensers, hand towels and mirror. Our luxury portable toilet units vary in size from 2m in length to 6.4m, sufficient to provide a spacious, well-lit common area in each.

Portable toilets are only for building sites and festivals

Untrue! Our fleet includes standard plastic units that are suitable for building sites and festivals of course, but our range of luxury trailers is used at weddings, private parties, corporate events and conferences, major sporting venues and on TV and film sets. Our smallest units can accommodate up to 100 guests, with our largest trailers being sufficient to service up to 450.
