Potential Additional Toilet Hire Costs

Delivery & Set Up

All our toilets are delivered and collected by D-tox Personnel. The units will be offloaded, sited and positioned for you. If your event is outside of the chosen suppliers standard coverage area there may be an additional charge here. Be sure to also ask about the collection of your portable toilets.

Cleaning & Maintenance

We offer a guaranteed weekly service included in our pricing. However, if the portable toilets you have hired will be subject to excessive use, then we suggest having additional servicing. This will have an additional charge, but will be well worth it to avoid complaints about smells!


Toiletries and sanitary supplies may be chargeable so check with your supplier first to find out what is included. Again, if the toilets are subject to high usage these may need to be restocked. This could incur an extra cost depending on the service provider. 


As mentioned above a weekly service may be included in your portable toilet hire agreement. In some instances, for large events, projects or construction sites you may need this to be more frequent. As such you can expect prices to be slightly more expensive for multiples services.
