The mobile sanitation industry is one of those industries that most people don’t think about until they need it. Even though that’s the case, our industry is steadily growing. Each sector of the industry is growing at different rates, and today, we will be going over the two heaviest hitters; porta potty rentals and roll-off dumpster rentals.

Porta Potty Rentals

To give you the layman’s explanation of the industry, the porta potty rental industry rents porta potties out to customers for varying lengths of time. Our customer base is made up mostly of construction companies, but we also cater to events, industrial settings, and even individuals. Depending on the terms of the rental agreement, industry operators like Pot-O-Gold Rentals may provide regular servicing to the rented units. From 2014-2019, the porta potty rentals industry boomed due to massive amounts of construction activity and increased demand from events and outdoor recreational facilities. According to IBISWorld, the industry saw an average growth of 6.9% over that 5-year time span.

Roll-Off Dumpster Rentals

The roll-off dumpster rental industry rents roll-off containers of varying sizes to commercial, industrial, and residential construction workers primarily. Customers can also include your average, everyday individual. Roll-off dumpster rental companies like Pot-O-Gold Rentals rent out dumpsters for varying lengths of time, swapping containers when they are full. From 2014-2019, the roll-off dumpster rental industry has done quite well due to the high levels of construction activity. The industry saw an average growth of 2.3% over that 5-year time span.

Setting Eyes On The Future

In these next 5 years, the mobile sanitation industry hopes to see the same level of growth that we saw this past half-decade, if not more. The rise of Covid-19 and the heavy burden our economy is bearing right now makes the immediate outlook seem pretty dark, but we remain ever hopeful. Pot-O-Gold Rentals hopes to see a major boom.
