How much does it cost to rent a dumpster?
Where you’re located and how much debris you’re handling can radically affect the price of a dumpster. Different dump sites charge different tonnage rates, but we can help you estimate how much your rental will cost if you give us a call.
How do I compare different price quotes for dumpsters?
Avoid companies who charge additional fees for delivery, landfill costs, fuel charges etc. Look for flat-rate prices based on dumpster size, number of days, and tonnage so that you can properly compare companies.

How often should a portable toilet be serviced?
Most porta potties are used short term and only need to be emptied when they’re picked up, but for long-term rentals and large events like county fairs, they’ll likely need to be emptied a few times before they’re collected. We recommend having it emptied every 80 to 100 uses, which could be daily for a large event.
What is a porta potty made of?
Most porta potties are manufactured from polyethylene plastic and aluminum, with steel fasteners and plastic or wooden rails.
Should I stake my porta potty?
Portable restrooms tend to be lightweight, and Oklahoma winds can be quite strong. It’s always a good idea to stake down a porta potty to prevent tipping.
Can portable toilets be used in hot climates?
There is no reason why you can’t use a portable restroom in a hot climate. Modern porta potties are designed with airflow in mind.
How big are porta potties?
The average porta potty is four feet by four feet, though ADA-compliant portable toilets are often as large as 40 square feet. Most standard porta potties are between seven and eight feet tall.
What are some of the features of a porta potty?
Porta potties tend to include an anti-slip floor, a translucent roof, air vents, self-closing doors with locks, “occupied” indicators, seats with lids, and often a non-splash urinal.
How do you dispose of porta potty waste?
We drain the portable restrooms into special trucks that deliver the refuse to a wastewater treatment plant for processing.
Do porta potties flush?
Most porta potties simply open into a holding tank and do not flush. There are, however, high-end portable restrooms with fancier features.
