The PSAI Code of Excellence Sets the Standard for Portable Sanitation Companies
The Code of Excellence was designed by leaders in the portable sanitation industry to be both aspirational and practical. Whether you are an industry member or not, our Code is intended to paint a picture of what the best companies already do, what good companies are working toward, and stand them in stark contrast to the “bad actors” that can cause harm by not following these guidelines. We recommend that portable restroom operators share the Code with their employees and use this document as a tool for strategic planning.
