Sanitation

Whether you refer to it as a porta john, a porta potty, or a portable toilet, we all know what the purpose of this outdoor convenience. However, not many of us now how they work. More importantly, what to do with the remains. Portable toilets are essential for any large outdoor gathering. Concerts and sporting events can draw tens of thousands of people who will all require access to restrooms. Public restroom facilities are not always available, especially in remote areas where some of these events take place. With all of those people using the portable toilets, it’s important to safely and quickly dispose of the remains. If waste isn’t disposed of properly there can be significant human health hazards as well as pollution of the environment.  So where does all of that waste go when the game ends and the concert goers head home?
