ADA and Portable Sanitation

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.

The portable sanitation industry must be conscious of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act with respect to:

  • The circumstances under which handicap accessible units must be provided
  • How many ADA accessible units are required
  • The path of travel to an ADA accessible unit

Members conducting business outside of the United States are advised to check with local government officials concerning accessibility requirements in those countries.

Here are links to the ADA guidelines that are most relevant to the portable sanitation industry:
