Aim Hire has the biggest fleet of portable toilets in Victoria. We know how important it is to keep your site toilets clean, hygienic and functioning on a daily basis. Hygienic toilets make a huge difference to the operation of a work site and importantly, team spirit on site. As such, its important to ensure your site toilet is kept in a manner fit for all!
Booking a regular rostered service on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis is one way to ensure your toilet service is not left to the last minute! Aim Hire service technicians will thoroughly clean your portable toilet and replenish water, chemicals and toilet paper. The toilet will then be date stamped and we will return on your next rostered service day to service your toilet again – no fuss, no need to call us, and your subbies remain happy and healthy on site.

We can service your toilet on a regular rostered basis across Victoria from Werribee, Melton, Sunbury, Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Broadford, Kinglake, Marysville, Lakes Entrance, Phillip Island, the Mornington Peninsular and Gippsland.
“HYGIENE STUDY OF PORTABLE TOILETS USED AT SINGLE DWELLING CONSTRUCTION SITES.”
Study prepared for Aim Hire by Derio Comar, BSc(Hons), FRACI, MASM, MAIFST, Consulting Microbiologist (25/3/11)
It is a commonly held view , but largely scientifically unfounded, that toilets, in particular public toilets pose some form of health risk. The evidence to support transmission of disease directly from toilets is virtually non existent. The public perception of risk is disproportionate to the reality.
Contrary to this there is considerable evidence that the human hand as a vector in the transmission of disease is a very important factor and is a well studied public health subject. The washing of hands post toilet is important and regarded as crucial in public health. Most of the significant diseases require the faecal-oral route for transmission, hence the importance of hand washing.
A large proportion of the few scientific papers published on public toilets and related matters, promoting the dangers of toilets, have been sponsored by chemical, cleaning or disinfection companies. Globally there is a conspicuous absence of regulations pertaining to toilets, largely because it is not a major public health issue.
This study has shown that the risk of any significant contamination coming from a toilet seat, the direct user contact area, is very low. Toilets in the field and in use for two weeks showed no significant increases in microbial loadings of the toilet seats compared to when they were freshly cleaned. Some deterioration in appearance was experienced over the 14 days but this was not materially translated into higher microbial numbers.
The data also clearly demonstrated that the status of the tanks, for these varieties of portable toilets, have no significant impact on the hygiene of the toilet. The data cannot support the concept of an arbitrary prescriptive timeframe for emptying tanks without consideration of the toilet type and its mode of use…
This study has attempted to objectively measure the microbiological and hygiene status of portable toilets at single dwelling construction sites. The data does not support that such portable toilets as currently being used pose a significant public health risk.
