Planning an outdoor event in winter presents a number of unique challenges. However, you can absolutely create a fantastic venue with all the comforts of an indoor setting. Today’s portable toilet rentals are classy, clean, and best of all, heated! Here are some tips on how to use them at an outdoor event.

The Layout & Pathway

Portable toilets should be placed in areas that are easy to access. Make sure to situate some close to food and drink stations. It’s also a good idea to place them in sunny areas, as the power of the sun can help warm portable toilets and prevent freezing. Additionally, you can position them against walls or fences to protect them from chilly winds. Just remember that our service trucks need to get within 40 feet of the units to service them. Lay out a path to the portable toilet that’s in the sunshine, or if it’s a night event, in an area that’s well lit. Clear away snow and ice to make a safe, level and sufficiently wide pathway. Putting salt on the path will prevent ice buildup. Pro Event Tip: Add some festive lighting or fairy lights to make the path prettier and more noticeable for your guests!

Staying Warm & Cozy

Outdoor heaters can make things much more comfortable for guests who need to wait in line to use the portable toilets. Large groups may require staggered heaters placed farther apart to allow for social distancing. Heated portable toilet rentals are also available. Our wheelchair accessible units have extra space and are also perfect for guests with children. Go the extra mile and ensure maximum comfort for your guests by renting our VIP Trailer. The luxurious heated units have two separate washroom facilities equipped with hot and cold water. They have porcelain toilets, stainless steel vanities, spotless black flooring and white interior walls. The unit also features paper towel and soap dispensers, built-in trash containers and automated faucets.

Hygienic Handwashing & Winter Service

Handwashing has become more important than ever at gatherings and events. Consider renting a separate handwashing station. Sink trailers are a great way to allow guests to comfortably wash their hands with warm water. Depending on the duration of your event, you may need professional servicing to ensure your toilets remain pristine and fully functional. Adding antifreeze products to the units’ waste systems helps prevent freezing. If you have any questions or concerns, we’re here to support and help you through every step of the way!
