Where does porta potty waste go?

    Working with used portable toilet water is what it sounds like, human waste mixed with the blue water. How is the porta potty cleaned? Where does it go? How is it transported? It's a process to keep your water system clean and avoid waste from spewing out of the toilet itself.

    To avoid a porta potty from overflowing, most companies set up a schedule from removing the porta potty or to clean and empty the porta potty of collected waste. A vacuum truck is sent out that has a big tank on the back with powerful hoses that hook up to the toilet and suction out the water. The tank also hold fresh water that is then poured into the potty. Once the water is cleaned, the portable toilet itself is usually wiped down or power washed and sanitized, the toilet paper is replenished and adding some kind of deodorizer and hand sanitizer, if they contain a dispenser, to complete the process.

    Once the portable toilet is cleaned, the vacuum truck can now make its way to it's local authorized sanitation cleaning facility. The facility will empty the truck's tank and run the water through a separation process of the waste from the actual water. The water will then be cleaned, tested and recycled back to the water supply.

    The team work it takes from the portable toilet rental company and the sanitation facility is important to make sure that all waste is handled safely and efficiently to avoid any illnesses or harm to the community. Being able to have a comfortable place to handle business while at an event is also important and the only way to do this is to continue providing the best cleaning process all around!

National Hispanic Heritage Month

    In 1968 President Lyndon B Johnson first recognized the observation of Hispanic Heritage Week and in 1988 it was expanded to a month long observation by President Ronald Reagan but why? From September 15th through October 15th in the United States, Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated to honor Hispanic Americans who "inspired others to achieve success." (U.S National Archives)

    The significance of this celebration in September is a representation of the many anniversaries of Latin American independence that happen to fall on September 15th which include Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. On September 12th Chile celebrates their independence and Mexico celebrates on September 16th. With as many as 60.5 million Hispanic people in the U.S (18.4% of the U.S population) in 2019 according to the U.S Census Bureau, it's no wonder Hispanic Heritage is such a meaningful and important month!

What is Labor Day?


    We all know Labor Day as the farewell party for Summer and the first holiday for the back to school kids. How did Labor Day start and what is the meaning of the holiday? Courtesy of, we can help with some of those answers!

    Dating all the way back to the 1800's, particularly during the Industrial Revolution, people of all ages (as young as 5) have worked long hours, every day and in harsh conditions. The workers consisted of the very poor and immigrants trying to make enough money for food to feed their families. Unions began forming as more manufacturing companies came about forming more jobs with no benefits became more frustrating to the employees. Many violent riots were held killing many people and officers, the most famous being Haymarket Riot in 1886. To rise up and avoid another major riot, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off in New York to march from City Hall to Union Square and this was known as the first Labor Day in US history.

    It took 12 years for Labor Day to be recognized and legalized by Congress. On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed the holiday into law. Labor Day has a dark history prior to its recognition and thanks to all the union workers putting their actions to work, we have gained better wages, benefits and working hours in business places everywhere.
