How You Manage Your Waste Can Make – or Break – Your Event in Edmonton!

How You Manage Your Waste Can Make – or Break – Your Event in Edmonton!

There are many events that may require you to need portable toilets in Edmonton. Whether you’re hosting a wedding, festival, concert or softball tournament, if the condition of your porta potties has your guests running for the bushes, you’re not giving your event a fighting chance.

If you have portable toilets on commercial or industrial sites in Edmonton—having dirty and foul-smelling porta potties is definitely not the best way to keep employees and clients happy.

Most porta potty rental services in Edmonton include a weekly servicing of their toilets in their rental fee. But accidents do happen! Have someone on your staff be responsible for regularly inspecting the portable toilets at your Edmonton event or jobsite and make sure they report any issues.

Here’s a look at what it takes to keep your portable toilets in Edmonton looking and smelling their best:

  • The pump. The first step in servicing porta potties in Edmonton is evacuating the waste from the holding tanks. This is done by inserting a vacuum hose from a sanitation truck into the toilet and pumping it dry. The waste is then transported to a wastewater facility where it is treated.
  • The wipe. Cleaning the interior and exterior of the units is vital. This usually consists of spraying a diluted cleaning solution on all surfaces—blasting it with a high-pressure washer. Touch points like toilet seats, door latches and hand sanitizer dispensers require special attention and are made spotless using a cleaning solution and rags.
  • The charge. Once the unit is clean, it can be “recharged.” Recharging means adding the requisite amount of blue liquid to the toilet to control odour and to disinfect. The liquid also serves as a usage measure: when the liquid takes on a green tint, it’s time to service!
  • The restock. Portable toilets in Edmonton are then stocked with sufficient toilet paper and hand sanitizer (soap and paper towels where applicable) to last until the next service.
