Mesa Waste Services has launched a new web site, mesawasteservices.com, that caters specifically to the portable sanitation industry. A customer can now request multiple quotes from local service providers anywhere in the U.S. with the mere click of a mouse. The site also provides useful customer information.
For example, multiple recalls of produce due to bacterial outbreaks over the last year have resulted in serious scrutiny of the sanitary conditions under which agricultural laborers work throughout the US. Many States, including Ohio, already have comprehensive programs that legislate the working conditions of field workers. However, porta pottys will probably become a hot topic in the legislature in the next few months.
The portable sanitation industry has a long history of developing products in response to regulations set by the federal and state governments. When portable toilets were mandated for field workers, the industry ramped up production. Production of wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant units was the industry's answer to the Americans with Disabilities Act. The increased number of women working in the construction trades resulted in production of lockable units. More recently, OSHA requirements for separate hand wash facilities saw the production a wide selection of wash stations from almost every portable toilet manufacturer in the world.
It seems the industry has now grown to the point where regulatory changes can be anticipated. Many manufacturers currently produce containment trays that are designed to be placed under the portable unit. This contains any run-off while the unit is being serviced and the technician simply sucks it into the pump truck and disposes of it with the rest of the waste. Mesa Waste predicts the next regulatory wave is going to be containment trays. When it's time to order, Mesa Waste will be ready to put customers in touch with the best service providers in their areas.
