Canadian City Thrilled with Porta Potties

August 19th, 2014

When you gotta go, you gotta go.

We’ve all been there, whether we want to admit it or not. You’re out and about with some friends or family and you’ve hydrated just a little too much. You look around for your best option and there are no bathrooms or porta potties in sight. What do you do? You know what comes next, and it’s something that every city, little or big has to deal with.

One Canadian city in particular is having particular difficulty dealing with public urination. Guelph, Ontario was the sight of 280 public urination complaints in 2012, according to police as reported in an article from The story claims that the city’s police force spend around 64 hours a year dealing with public urination complaints.

That sounds like a lot to deal with. If only there were a solution so that police could deal with more serious crimes and normally innocent citizens would not be forced to take such desperate measures like committing a crime out of necessity. You know where this is going, and so did the police in Guelph: they went the way of the porta potty, and the results were fantastic as you would imagine.

"You look at the reduced time on policing, reduced time on bylaw, the reduced time on city works to clean up public fouling, and also the impact on the business or commercial owner who doesn't have to clean their windows," Guelph police chief Bryan Larkin told "In my view, (it's) money well spent upfront to see what the outcome is."

Money well spent, indeed.

In order to avoid situations like this one our neighbors to the north had to deal with, always go with Johnny On The Spot. We have portable restrooms for every occasion, whether you’re in construction, throwing a party or making it easier for your citizens to have a night out on the town like in Guelph.

Try our standard restroom for your every need!

Back in Guelph, Ontario they’re already seeing the progress that can be made with porta potties in a very short time.

"From our perspective, we think there's value in not having to issue as many violations. We see the success rate. We've seen when we introduced the porta potties we're seeing some return on our investment," Larkin said.

If your town is in need of porta potties in New Jersey, New York or Pennsylvania let us know today!

One Woman Makes it Possible to Stand Up in Porta-Potties

August 18th, 2014

Porta-potties might not always have the best reputation, especially when it comes the the female population. (Unless of course you’re talking about the superior product provided by Johnny On The Spot!) -- But one San Francisco woman is looking to change the conversation when it comes to portable bathroom use for the good of womankind.

Sara Grossman is getting women to stand up to porta-potty inequality with a unique invention aptly called Stand Up.
"As you can see, it's a small, cute, little triangle, which is why it's an accessory," Grossman said in an article from "It directs the urine perfectly into the toilet. So you put this up against your body and then the urine comes out here and goes straight in."

We'd imagine that not everyone would prefer this invention as an alternative to sitting. As if to prove this, spoke to some women about how they feel about this new bathroom “accessory.” While some saw the utility of Stand Up, others were not as thrilled at the prospect of using it.

In preparation for Outside Lands, a music festival in San Francisco that took place earlier this month, samples were passed out to give it a shot. The product itself is small (about 4.5 inches tall), pink and opens up for easy access in conjunction with any urinal. The idea is that it can come with you, be easily concealed and easily used (just once, we hope) before being thrown away. It’s also biodegradable if you’re trying to go green.

One “purse pack,” which included six individual products can be purchased at for a $6 dollar fee. To give you a better idea of why one might want to even buy something like this, the website provides suggestions like “Upgrade your bathroom experience, even if there’s no bathroom.”

It’s quite an idea from the self-proclaimed “Queen Pee,” But until that catches on, when you’re looking for a quality porta-potty experience, set your mind at ease with such products from Johnny On The Spot like the celebrity or deluxe porta-potties, equipped with flushing toilets, sinks with running water, hand towels with soap and waste baskets. You’ve gotta give it up for creativity, but until you have your own Stand Up, we know both sexes will be satisfied with the comfort offered by any porta-potty from Johnny on the Spot.

Tips for finding the Best Portable Toilet Available

July 29th, 2014

Every single one of us has had to use a porta potty at some time or another. Even though a person may not plan to use a portable toilet again, the key is to find and use the best portable toilet available. It does not matter if a person owns a house with eight bathrooms or zero bathrooms because when that person is out of the house and needs to use a toilet he or she will. Recently studies have been conducted in order to determine which portable toilets are the best portable toilets to use. These studies have been interpreted into a list of tips and tricks, which makes an experience that is typically dreaded, bearable.

Studies have shown the best portable toilets are the furthest away from the majority of people. This is because the studies have discovered the average person would rather visit the portable toilet, which is closest to them. As a result, the best portable toilets have the smallest amount of bacteria and germs present within and surrounding the portable toilet. This means that the bathroom that is relatively far away is the cleanest. Taking the additional few seconds to walk a little further can help to ensure your bathroom experience is a bit more sanitary.

This study also suggests that each person should bring his or her own toilet paper. The reason this is because there is sometimes a large amount of people and if that is the case, it is quite possible that the toilet paper could run out. However if anyone runs into a Johnny On The Spot portable toilet, it is safe to assume that the portable toilet is very well maintained. This is because Johnny On The Spot is known as one the industry preferred company that takes the time to maintain each of their portable toilets on a regular basis. This makes these portable toilets some of the best portable toilets on the streets today.

Another reason Johnny On The Spot provides some of the best portable toilets is because free hand sanitizer is provided with every portable toilet. In addition, soap dispensers may be provided with an attached sink that is operated by a foot pump.  Typically, with other portable toilet companies, these supplies may run out quickly, forcing the public to either do without, or use their own hand sanitizer. However, bathrooms maintained by Johnny On The Spot have a significantly lower chance of running out of much needed supplies during your event.

The best portable toilets minimize unpleasant odors because each restroom’s floor, wall and pipe vents are constructed to provide maximum ventilation. In addition, an interior latch and an exterior occupancy indicator protect any user’s privacy. Also, accidental injuries can be prevented with Johnny On The Spot’s restrooms' anti-slip floors and smooth, sharp-edge free exterior design.

Johnny On The Spot should be your first choice for when looking for the best portable toilets available. If you are out and about, and need to carry-out your business, the best decision you could make is to seek out a Johnny On The Spot portable toilet.

Recently a medium-sized family-owned manufacturing building was vandalized. Their outdoor facade was covered with inappropriate graffiti, thus damaging the entire image that company had been trying to convey to the neighborhood for years.

Renting Portable Bathrooms: Baby Changing Stations and Family Bathrooms

July 21st, 2014

When planning an event, there are so many details to consider that important accessibility issues may frequently get overlooked. Renting portable bathrooms is generally a fairly simple and straightforward process, but a traditional porta potty may not meet all of your guests or attendees requirements.

Parents with babies or small children will also require a space to go to the bathroom. At many events and outdoor locations, mothers are left with no other option but to change their babies’ diapers on the ground, surrounded by strangers and onlookers. Or they are forced to cram into a standard-sized porta potty with their toddler to help them use the toilet.

Not only is this uncomfortable for the parent and child, but it is unsanitary and represents a major invasion of the family’s privacy. In addition, onlookers and other event attendees have no desire to have their event interrupted by naked, screaming children, or even worse, being forced to see or smell dirty and wet diapers.

Providing a safe, clean space for families to use the bathroom is in the best interests of all of your event-goers. If you are looking for a porta potty rental in NJ, Johnny on the Spot offers multiple bathroom options for even your smallest guest. Make sure your event is fully accessible by ordering a baby changing station along with your normal porta potty rental order. The baby changing station will come with a fold down table at waist-height in order to provide an easy, comfortable location for caregivers to change their baby’s diaper. Furthermore, the station will also provide a foot pump sink with soap, paper towels and trash disposal to keep parents and babies clean and safe.

In addition to a portable baby changing station, ensuring that approximately 20% of your portable bathroom rental order is ADA-compliant will help to provide adequate space for family bathrooms. Not only will the roomier ADA-compliant porta potties deliver bathroom access to your handicapped visitors, but they will serve as a family bathroom for your event. Parents can comfortably accommodate their small child or toddler into the bathroom to help them use the facility, without worrying about space or hygiene.

How Many Porta Potty Rentals Are Necessary?

July 17th, 2014

People must ask each other a number of questions before they are certain about how many porta potty rentals are appropriate for their event or work project. There are specifically five questions that if answered incorrectly, could have a major impact on the success of the event or work project. If an event does not have the appropriate number of porta potty rentals, long lines can ensue, causing guests to waste their time waiting to relieve themselves, rather than enjoying the event. Also, during a work-project, employees may waste more time and money because they are waiting in line rather than working.

When people call for portable toilets or temporary restrooms, one of the first questions we get is – how many portable toilets for my event or work project will I need? There are several factors that need to be considered:

How many attendees do you expect?

It is important to perform an estimate about the number of guests that will attend during the upcoming event. Ifyour are trying to estimate how many porta potty rentals you need for a work site or event to order, the appropriate measure is by employees.

How long will the event last?

In addition to the quantity of potential bathroom goers, the total length of time of event is also a significant factor. Every two hours of event time may require additional porta potty rentals

Will alcohol be served at an event?

If alcohol is being served then it is important to note that people typically tend to find the need to relieve themselves more often. As a result, additional porta potty rentals may need to be placed at the event.

What level of physical activity is involved?

When there is a high level of activity during an event or work-site, there is a tendency for patrons and employees to drink more liquids. This consumption of liquid causes each group to find the need to relieve them more often. This will result in more activity at porta potties, thus requiring people to rent more porta potties to avoid long lines.

Are 50% or more of the guests women?

If 50% or more of your guest or workers women it is suggested to add an additional facility.

At Johnny On The Spot porta potty rentals is one of their specialties. They provide job-site restroom rentals, commercial bathroom rental and temporary toilets for construction sites and permanent locations to the NJ, NY and PA area. They are committed to being the best firm to work for in the portable sanitation industry. It has been their experience that great workers make sure to help every customer. They will work hard to help those that represent us.

Renting Portable Bathrooms at a College Graduation Party

July 10th, 2014

Dear Johnny,

I attended a university that was located about six and a half hours away from my hometown in New Jersey. I had graduated from college last year and similar to rest of my undergraduate classmates, I decided to host a college graduation party back in my hometown. Friends and family of mine travelled from throughout the country to visit me for my graduation party. Nearly 300 people attended my graduation party and I knew my four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom house would not be able to cater my guests properly. I figured the next reasonable step to take considering I did not want everyone waiting in line for one of the few bathrooms in my house, was renting portable bathrooms.

When renting portable bathrooms., I decided that I would review various portable bathroom companies. After further review, I soon knew which company would be right for me. This is especially true after I had spoken to a friend of mine who had used the company Johnny On The Spot and only had compliments to say. My friend said that your company was known for renting portable bathrooms that felt as if they should be permanent addition to the house. When I contacted Johnny On The Spot your staff was very personable and had a variety of portable restrooms to choose from. I decided to rent three portable toilets. These portable restrooms were called the celebrity restrooms. These restrooms had flushing toilets, foot pump sinks, soap, mirrors, hand towels, solar lights and even a magazine rack. The process of renting portable bathrooms with Johnny On The Spot became effortless and clear-cut.   I cannot thank you guys enough for all of the hard work you people had put forth.

Renting portable bathrooms actually ended up to becoming the easiest part of the entire party planning process. The invitations were the hardest in case you were wondering. Finally, when the party had begun everything was running smoothly, people were chatting, drinks were served and the food was divine. It was all going so well that the party actually extended two hours more than expected. The portable restrooms continued to work without any problems. Everything was operating like clockwork, it seemed like no one would ever leave. My parents said that they were surprised at how well the guests had responded to the portable restroom. Even some of our more “tense” family members did not feel the need to go inside to use the other restrooms.

At the end of the day, I cannot thank you people enough at Johnny On The Spot, for providing exceptional service and product. My friends are always talking about how fun my graduation party was and I have to give partial credit to where it is due. I know of friend of mine who is a manager at a construction site and I have already recommended to him that Johnny On The Spot should be the sole provider of whenever they are renting portable bathrooms.

Outdoor Event Porta Potty Planning

July 7th, 2014

If you are deciding to plan for an outdoor birthday party or a large art festival, it is important to prepare and rent an outdoor Event Porta Potty. Having all of your party goers and guests know that an Event Porta Potty is only an earshot away can give them peace of mind. We know that renting an Event Porta Potty may not be at the top of the to-do list, but it is important to understand how essential it is to the party planning process. People may complain a little about the lack of hors d'oeuvres or if a car or two has to park a little bit further than anticipated, but if the party planner forgets to rent the Event Porta Potty, calamity can ensue. Renting an Event Porta Potty does not need to be a hassle. Here are the steps you can take.

1. Get an Estimate

    The first step that an event planner must take is to determine if you need just one Event Porta Potty or many. . It is much better to lean on the safer side and have an extra portable restroom that is not in constant use than a constant line of guests waiting to relieve themselves. If the latter occurs, guests will be “enjoying” the bathroom line instead of enjoying the event.

    In order to calculate the appropriate ratio of Event Porta Potty to guest, some in the industry recommend using 1 facility per 100 people as a good point of reference. It is also important to consider if alcohol will be served at the event, because if so, the party planner may need to order an additional Event Porta Potty.

    2. Search Johnny On The Spot

      When you are looking for an appropriate provider for your Event Porta Potty, you could visit Johnny On The Spot online or check your local listings. If you are looking for a confirmation regarding the quality of Johnny On The Spot’s porta potties rentals, you should ask an event planner in the area or check their website.

      3. Get Started Quickly

        The earlier a person planning an event reserves their Event Porta Potty, the better.  . Procrastination is one of the leading causes of improperly planned or executed events, and it often results in attendees suffering the consequences with long bathroom lines or worse.  The further out from the start date of the event a planner reserves their portable bathrooms, the higher probability that planner has of having his or her needs accommodated. Johnny On The Spot can meet the needs of any size event.  Guests will feel comfortable at every event as well as when they need to step away. Johnny On The Spot can connect anyone with an Event Porta Potty that can successfully meet their needs

        The Three Best Portable Toilet Hygiene Practices to Prevent Disease

        July 1st, 2014

        In current news, an investigation conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave evidence of sanitation issues regarding the E. coli outbreak at a sprouts farm. The FDA announced the water system was rusty and corroded, thus causing dripping condensate and mold growth. Due to the outbreak, the FDA later discovered that seventeen people were infected. This outbreak encouraged various industries to review and educate others on how important sanitation is to them. A portable restroom company has shared their Best Portable Toilet Hygiene practices for an agricultural site. In addition, portable sinks and sanitizers for patrons’ hands were also a contributing factor to Best Portable Toilet hygiene.

        People working at an agricultural site can perform a few general practices in order to prevent the transmission of a disease and infection.

        To minimize the spread disease transmitted by the hands it is important to invest in hand-wash stations. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that eighty percent of infections are spread by hand contact. As a result, hand washing can help to reduce the spread of germs and infection. An appropriate number of portable sinks should accompany all Portable Toilets in order to ensure the Best Portable Toilet Hygiene Practices.

        Another key hygiene practice when using a portable toilet is to have strategic restroom placement. When renting portable toilets on an agricultural work site or any work site where food is prepared, a place to wash hands is a crucial component to having a hygienic option. Ensuring that the Best Portable Toilets and portable sink stations are in proximity to each other can reduce the potential spread of disease.

        A person who is renting a portable toilet may disagree with a proper placement decision because they do not want the portable toilet to be visible.  It is important to remember that the majority of people are more willing to use portable hand-washing system if they are visible and easily accessible.

        According to recent publications there are limitations regulating where you can and cannot place portable toilets on an agricultural work site. Here are a few simple guidelines for placement:

        Do not place restrooms too close to food/beverages or livestock activities
        Verify the number of restrooms necessary to prevent overcrowding or overuse
        Allow 25 feet of access for a service truck

        It is important to keep informed about the new ways of increasing your awareness of disease prevention in regards to how to place portable toilets near portable hand washing stations.  At agricultural sites and other venues where germs and bacteria are prevalent, it is important to promote hand washing.  The public and your customers have been shown to respond positively when an additional effort is put forth to ensure a high hygienic standard. This could help extend your contract with the renting agencies and add more rental jobs to your calendar from members of the public who notice. People like to know you are willing to go the extra mile to educate them and their friends and family on health and safety issues.

        Poor Portable Toilets Ruined the Event for Me

        June 30th, 2014

        Dear Johnny,

        I recently attended an event with inferior portable toilets. How I wish you were there instead…

        Normally, people don’t have a porta potty allegiance, but as a woman confined to a wheelchair, I take careful note of which portable bathrooms can accommodate me and which cannot.

        The day had started out great. The weather had obeyed our wishes as the sun was smiling down at us, promising that the gala event would run smoothly without any glitches. The grounds were well prepared and beautifully decorated to ensure that everyone present had a great time. The caterers also made sure that no one would get hungry as there was enough delicious food and drink to last for the entire event. The turnout was great, and by 10am everyone had settled in well to enjoy what the gala had to offer.

        As time went by, due to the amount of drinks that I had, it became urgent that I find a restroom to relieve myself. This was when I realized that the glamorous event was not as well prepared as I thought. For starters, they were only 2 portable toilets that were located at the far end of the grounds. This was quite an inconvenience as I had to cover a long distance to get to the portable toilets.

        My friend accompanied me to the bathrooms in case I needed assistance. When I arrived at the portable toilets, I was quite disappointed because they could not be accessed easily with a wheel chair. I had to struggle to get into a standard size toilet, which is a huge difficulty when you are handicapped. Did I mention that I had to wait for what seemed like days because there were only 2 toilets that were serving everyone people that had come to enjoy the gala?

        Once it was my turn to get in, I could not believe what I was seeing. For starters, the portable toilets were too small, without enough space for my chair. I was forced to leave my wheelchair behind and get into the bathroom with the help of my friend. Secondly, they were not well lit, which made it an even greater struggle. On top of that they weren’t ventilated properly, and were emitting a pretty foul stench. It was quite a relief when I was finally done and I promised myself that I wasn’t going to drink anything else at the event, as there was no way I was going back to those toilets again.

        You can guess that I did not enjoy the rest of the event. In fact I left early so that I could go and ‘enjoy’ the restroom facilities in my house, which didn’t offer nearly the same problems. People need to take note, that if you are planning on organizing an outdoor event, make sure that you put a lot of thought into getting portable toilets that can accommodate all of your guests’ needs. While it may not seem that important, you can guarantee that your guests will feel differently.

        It’s sad, because I know that if these organizers had relied on Johnny on the Spot, I actually might have been able to enjoy myself.

        High Rise Restrooms Saved Our Company

        June 28th, 2014

        Dear Johnny,

        I am the foreman at a NYC-based construction company. Your high rise restrooms made the difference in our bottom-line. BIG TIME!

        Our company had developed a reputation for not completing projects on time and that was bad for business. While our construction is impeccable, our poor reputation for missing deadlines had to be addressed. The owner assigned me to the task.

        Time is money and hardly anyone wanted to risk allocating projects to our company when they knew that there was a high possibility that it would not be completed on time. The few contracts that we got were from companies who would compromise on their timeframe to get the quality that we were able to deliver.

        After careful analysis, I realized that we were losing a lot of time due to small things like bathroom breaks—they were killing our productivity! Most of our projects were high rise buildings, and for this reason the workers had to descend dozens of floors sometimes to use the few portable toilets that we had.

        When our employees needed to use the bathroom, it took them nearly 15 minutes each time. Multiply that by dozens of employees, 2-3 times per day and you are talking countless hours of wasted time. We had to find a way around this problem and it was not as though we could tell people not to use the bathroom or to take fewer breaks.

        We began looking into how we could solve this problem and stumbled upon the option of ordering high rise restrooms from Johnny on the Spot. At the time, we couldn't even believe that these existed—and that we hadn’t thought of this before! It was a definite improvement to our situation. Whoever thought about creating high rise restrooms may have saved our business that day. We decided to rent a number of these portable restrooms for every high rise project that we were operating.

        The high rise restrooms are designed perfectly for construction sites. They could be easily lifted by cranes that we had on site. The facilities were basic but that's all we needed. Instead of losing fifteen minutes descending and ascending, bathroom breaks got shorter. Five minutes or less, on average. This meant that production was increased, for a relatively small cost.

        From the time that we decided to rent portable high rise restrooms, our project completion speed skyrocketed. Over the course of the next few months our track record for completing projects on time increased dramatically. Not only do we now have a great reputation for delivering a high quality product, but our reputation for completing projects on time is steadily improving. Those two qualities make up a recipe for success in the construction industry.

        Our owners claim that high rise restrooms are one of the best investments that we have ever made. We kept wondering why we never thought about this from the beginning, and kick ourselves for not doing something sooner. We were thrilled with the high rise restrooms and the service we received from Johnny on the Spot. The only regrets we have today are in regards to all the production time that we lost in the past. It certainly hurt our reputation. To think, all we had to do was to get some portable high rise restrooms, and our problems would have been solved!
