Frequently Asked Questions - Portable Toilet Rental FAQ
Q. Can I rent a portable toilet for just one day?
Yes! Our toilets are great for weekend parties, or even a one-day party. It is always best to call at least two days prior to your event to ensure proper delivery times.
Q. How much advance notice do I need to reserve a portable toilet?
To ensure we can service you it is best to make your reservation as far in advance as possible. At a minimum it is best to place your order for portable toilet service at least 48 hours in advance. For large special events or job sites, a week or more lead-time is advisable. For urgent needs we are often able to deliver toilets the same day for an extra delivery charge.
Q. Can I place my portable toilet anywhere?
CPR places your portable toilet(s) at your event or on your job site per your instruction. We will make every reasonable attempt to accommodate your wishes as to placement on the portable unit. However, we will relocate the unit or notify you if it becomes necessary so that it is readily accessible for servicing. This ensures that our trucks, employees and equipment are not in danger or at risk and be able to safely service the unit(s).
Q. How do you keep the water from freezing?
We mix an ecological anti-freeze in with the deodorizing water that is placed in the tank and works to keep the water fluid and unfrozen during the colder temperatures of the year. All products used are environmentally safe.
Q. Am I required having a portable toilet on my job site?
Most city ordinances specifically spell out the requirement of a portable toilet on a construction site and inspectors will require that a portable toilet is placed on site. In addition, OSHA requires a portable toilet on a construction site under the Safety and Health Regulations for a Construction (1923.51 (c) (1), 1926.51 (c) (3), (I), (ii), (iii), (iv) ). For information regarding specific city or country ordinances contact the city where construction is occurring or CPR.

We service portable toilets once per week. This is done to keep the units fully stocked, clean and sanitized. The fee for the toilet includes the rental and once per week service. We can provide service more frequently if required.
Q. Where do you put the waste go after it has been pumped?
Wastewater is taken to local wastewater facilities and disposed of according to the regulations, procedures and sanitary conditions required by the facilities.
Q. What do I do if my portable toilet gets tipped over?
Contact our office as soon as possible to report the incident. We will then dispatch a driver to come to the site and clean the unit or switch out the portable toilet with a replacement depending on the severity of the tip over.
Q. What guidelines do I need to know for the ADA restrooms?
CPR offers all types of ADA compliant Portable Toilets for use on a construction site, commercial area, or special event in some areas. Where available, our ADA units are large enough and obtain the proper elements to meet the standards that have been outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Specifically, the statute states that for single user portable toilets clustered at a single location, at least 5% but no less than one toilet unit shall be installed at each cluster whenever typical inaccessible units are provided. Accessible units shall also be identified by the International Symbol of Accessibility. The exception is that if portable toilet units are used exclusively by construction personnel who to not require the use of an ADA unit, you are not required to comply with this statute. (Federal Register/Vol. 56, No. 144/July 26, 1991/ Rules and Regulations/ 4.1.2 Accessible Site and Exterior Facilities: New Construction). For the complete set of ADA guidelines relating to portable restrooms, please contact our office.
Q. How do you cut down on the odors and germs within the portable unit?
CRP not only pumps out the holding tank but also provides meticulous janitorial service both inside and out. Our employees wash and clean the portable restrooms at each service, which includes washing with soap and water. We also provide a special deodorized detergent in the water, which keeps the unit smelling great while reducing exposure to germs.
