Event Porta Potty Calculator

How Many Porta Potties for Events?

The number of porta potties for events you need depends on various factors, including the number of attendees, the duration of the event, and whether food and drink will be served. A general rule of thumb is to have at least one porta potty for every 50 guests for an event lasting up to four hours. For longer events, or if alcohol is served, you may need to increase this number to ensure comfort and reduce wait times.

Prime Dumpster’s porta potty calculator takes the guesswork out of planning by considering these factors to provide a tailored recommendation for your specific event needs.
