When planning an event, whether it's a music festival, outdoor wedding, or corporate gathering, sanitation logistics are crucial. Porta potties, though not the most glamorous aspect of event planning, play a vital role in ensuring attendees' comfort and hygiene. Here’s how you can effectively incorporate porta potties into your event budget.

Assessing Your Needs

The first step in budgeting for porta potties is determining how many units you'll need. Several factors influence this, including event duration, your attendee count, and the type of event you are planning. It is important to keep in mind these three things: Longer events typically require more facilities, knowing how many people are attending your event will help you estimate what kind of resources you will need, and what your event and the type of people that are attending your event needs might be.

Types of Porta Potties

Stop and Go Potties offers a variety of different potties to help cover all your needs. The type you choose depends on your event’s scale, theme, and the comfort level you aim to provide. Stop and Go offers three different stations for you to choose from:

1. Portable Toilets


2. Site Services
  • You can choose between two types of sanitation stations based on your needs. These are best used at any job site or event where sanitation or bulk waste needs can be met.


3. Luxury Restrooms
  • ·There are three types of Luxury Restroom Rentals you can choose based on the number of people and type of event you are hosting. These are best for when you are looking for an experience that relates more closely to a “traditional” Bathroom.

Decide which types and how many of each are necessary based on your attendee demographics and event style.


Budget Considerations

When budgeting for porta potties, consider the following costs: rental fees, which are typically charged per unit and may vary based on the type and duration of rental; delivery and pickup costs, encompassing transportation to and from your event location; and maintenance expenses, which can include regular servicing such as cleaning and restocking supplies, with some companies charging additional fees for these services.

Allocate a portion of your overall event budget specifically for porta potties, ensuring you account for potential additional costs like emergency services or last-minute changes.


Placement and Logistics

Strategic placement of porta potties is crucial for attendee convenience and smooth logistical flow. Factors to consider include ensuring accessibility by placing units within easy reach from different parts of the event venue, especially focusing on VIP or premium areas for upscale or ADA-compliant units. Clear signage is essential to prevent confusion about restroom locations, while coordinating with rental companies on access routes facilitates efficient delivery, servicing, and pickup operations throughout the event duration.


Integrating porta potties into your event budget involves careful planning and consideration of various factors, from attendee comfort to logistical feasibility and environmental impact. By assessing your needs, choosing the right types and quantities, and budgeting accordingly, you can ensure that sanitation facilities enhance rather than detract from your event experience. Remember, thorough planning in this often-overlooked area can significantly contribute to the overall success of your event.
