How far in advance do I need to reserve a portable toilet?

During peak times of the year we often sell out. 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.

Am I required to have 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 porta potty is ordered and either placed on site or on its way before approving the inspection. 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 your local United Site Services office.


It is important for your workers to be able to use the restroom when working hard for you.  An Elvis portapotty is the best way to keep your waste serviced and cleaned weekly.

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 a week service. We can provide service more frequently if required.

What happens if my portable toilet gets tipped over?

When a tip over of a portable toilet does occur we ask that our customers contact our office as soon as possible to report the incident.

What are the guidelines for the ADA restrooms?

United Site Services offers portable wheelchair restrooms that are ADA compliant 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)

How frequently should my in ground sewer grease trap be serviced?

All grease traps are unique due to the various sizes and volume of FOG (Fats Oil and Grease) that are generated by the restaurant.  Depending on your need we can schedule bi-monthly to bi-annually services.  Some grease traps fill up in a few weeks, and need to be pumped out monthly.  Some restaurants do not fry as much food or do not generate as much kitchen waste.  These grease traps may be able to be serviced every few months.  It is important to check with your local regulator to understand the regulation as to grease trap pumping frequency.  Some towns or counties may mandate you to pump out your grease trap on a frequent schedule.  Regardless of how frequently you need to pump your grease trap, we would appreciate a chance to provide you with the cleanest and most depenable grease trap service locally in Myrtle Beach, SC.  Remember you also may need your septic tank cleaned and pumped out.  We can do that too!
