5. What does ADA mean for our company?

B&R services offers portable wheelchair accessible restrooms that are A.D.A. compliant for use on a construction site, commercial area. Where location permits , our A.D.A. units are large enough and contain the appropriate characteristics to meet and abide by the standards that have been outlined by the ‘Americans with Disabilities Act’.

Americans with Disabiies Act ( ADA) the statute that effects our industry 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 do not require the use of an A.D.A. 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 A.D.A. guidelines relating to portable restrooms, please contact our office or view our Regulations page.

6. Does a Portable Restroom Really Help My Bottom Line? (construction)

By providing a portable restroom on your work site, you can reduce the distance, time and fuel your employees must spend searching for an alternative facility/location. The following chart was developed in a study conducted by the Portable Sanitation Association International (PSAI).

The annual cost of 20 minutes of wasted toilet time per employee, per day:

Hourly Rate 4 Employees 10 Employees
$8.00 $3,340.00 $3,400.00
$10.00 $4,250.00 $4,250.00
$13.00 $5,525.00 $5,525.00
$15.00 $6,375.00 $6,375.00

Formula as shown is as follows:  Hourly rate divided by 60 minutes per hour x 20 minutes x number of employees x 255 days per year.

7. Do I legally have to have a portable restroom on my worksite?

Most city ordinances specifically require portable restrooms on construction sites, and inspectors will require a porta potty to be delivered before approving the inspection. You will need to seek out counsel for your specific city, county or location.

8. Why should I choose a restroom trailer instead of a portable restroom?

A restroom trailer offers several additional features than a standard portable restroom. Amenities include but are not limited to sinks with running water, temperature-controlled environments, flushable toilets, and interior lighting.

9. How many portable restrooms or restroom trailers should I order?

Please use our estimator for an approximate recommended number of units.

10. In a restroom trailer, where does the waste go when I flush?

With no sewer connection, the trailers utilize a specialized holding tank that collects waste.

11. How is the waste disposed of?

Portable restrooms utilize a plastic storage container which eliminates the need for plumbing. The flexible storage allows for the units to be conveniently placed in nearly any location. Our specialized technicians service each unit weekly. Using a specialized pump, the waste is removed from the plastic bins and taken to a water treatment facility for proper disposal.

12. How often are units serviced?

At minimum, we service each unit once a week. Additional servicing is available upon request.

13. What does servicing entail?

The interiors of the units are properly sanitized and restocked with supplies, if the unit requires supplies. Also, the plastic waste tanks are emptied. Overall maintenance, function, and cleanliness of the units are of the upmost priority.

Yes you can pay your bill online or set up recurring payments to be charged to your preferred billing method.
