Portable Sanitation – Associating Internationally!

With a constant need for Porta Potty rentals placed at multiple events and projects around the globe, our industry is continually expanding.  One can often wonder where the Jacks and Jills of the John gather for information and updates in the Portable Sanitation community.  In 1970, a group of business leaders in the portable sanitation industry met in Don’s Johns hometown, Washington, D.C. to discuss portable restrooms and sanitation standards. The rest was history – and PSAI was born.

The Portable Sanitation Association International (PSAI) looks to be recognized as the authority within our industry.  PSAI represents members around the globe through regional networks to maintain and constantly improve upon the standard for all companies providing portable toilets, restroom trailer rentals and other portable sanitation services, making the environment a cleaner, safer place for everyone.

PSAI focuses on the multiple advantages portable sanitation brings to a situation.  According to the PSAI website, there are multiple cost saving, health and environmental reasons to rent portable restrooms, a restroom trailer or other sanitation facilities for permanent and temporary locations.  Portable Restroom Rentals serve many different functions, such as:

  • Special Events
  • Construction
  • Parks
  • Government Agencies
  • Sporting Events
  • Public Gatherings
  • Disaster Relief, and other outdoor needs.

Since their official founding in 1971, PSAI has evolved into a global resource for portable restroom operators and associates alike.  An official certification program has been implemented to maintain high standards in portable sanitation, as well as round table and panel discussions with experts sharing information and solving problems within the industry.

Industry conferences are also held, including the 2011 PSAI convention recently held in San Antonio, TX.  Attended by top industry experts, as well as some of Don’s Johns finest, awards are distributed to those who are innovating and staying dedicated to providing the best in portable restroom rentals and sanitation services.  PSAI also promotes expanding education within the porta potty business by offering scholarships to up and coming employees within the industry.

Don’s Johns is proud to be a member of PSAI.
