Proper porta potty placement isn't just a matter of keeping them close and accessible to party-goers. Portable restrooms have to be placed on dry, level land and should always be within 25 feet of where a maintenance truck can park. Plus, it's crucial to protect portable restrooms from the elements.

Where do you put portable toilet waste?
If you're emptying a small portable toilet (like for camping) then you just need to make sure you're disposing of waste at a designated dump point.
