The Do's & Don’ts of Portable Toilet Etiquette, South Fork, Missouri

Portable toilets are convenient additions to outdoor events and other environments where restrooms aren’t within a reasonable distance. To make the most of these small receptacles, adhere to a few basic etiquette rules. Here’s what you should know about using a port-a-potty.


Keep it clean.

The cleaner you leave a portable toilet, the better precedent you set for the person in line behind you. Make a point of cleaning up after yourself — pick up any napkins or toilet paper that fall to the ground, ensure the port-a-potty flushes if it’s a flush model, and dispose of trash in the appropriate receptacle. Don’t deposit anything in the toilet except for waste and toilet paper.

Wash your hands.

It’s sanitary and respectful to wash your hands when finished using a portable toilet rental. Doing so ensures you don’t leave any germs behind on the door handle and that you leave the space as sanitary as possible for the person who follows you.

Take too long.

Usually, there are long lines outside portable toilets. This is the nature of using the restroom at an event filled with people. To avoid holding others up, move swiftly and avoid stalling in the bathroom. For example, you might take a few moments to make a quick phone call or send some texts in a spacious restaurant restroom. However, when there’s a line outside, avoid doing anything but what’s necessary.

Get distracted in line.

It’s easy to get distracted when you’re standing in line waiting your turn, but don’t get too caught up in what’s going on around you. Wait to chat with your friends until you’re done, and pay attention as the line moves forward. The faster everyone gets in and out, the more efficiently the line moves.
