Anticipating a good crop this year? Whether you hire a crew to help you pick your bounty or offer U-pick services to the public, you need to make sure the extra visitors to your property are comfortable. Here’s how to go about renting a portable toilet and other sanitary installations for your fall harvest.
The Benefits of Portable Bathrooms
Portable toilets offer several benefits for both you and your visitors, including: • Comfort and convenience for the people visiting your property • Stress-free sanitation that’s zero-maintenance • Customized rental times so you only pay for what you need • Different models to suit your needs
Deciding on Your Needs
The number of units you’ll need depends on the number of people you expect to have visit your farm and how long you think they’ll stay. If you offer apple or pumpkin U-pick services and you’ll have less than 50 visitors per day, you’re probably safe with just one bathroom.
Accommodate Seasonal Workers
If you need to provide a restroom for a seasonal crew, you’ll want to make sure you have enough portable toilets scattered throughout your property to handle the demand. A good rule of thumb is to provide one toilet for every 15 workers. If you need more than one, you may want to place them in different locations to make bathroom breaks quick and convenient for your crew.
Don’t Forget Your Visitors!
If you have some combination of U-pick services and workers, you’ll need to provide adequate facilities for both groups and ensure they’re conveniently located. Depending on the experience you’d like to provide your guests, you can choose between regular portable units, wheelchair accessible units, and even air-conditioned VIP trailers that provide both hot and cold water.
Add a Handwashing Station
Most portable toilets come equipped with hand sanitizer and some models even feature water-free soap and paper towels. But for some situations, you’ll want to provide your guests and crew with access to running water and soap. In these cases, adding a handwash station might be necessary.
