Portable Toilet facilities are important, especially after a major disaster like Superstorm Sandy. 

When there is a major disaster, New Yorkers always come together and help one another. The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy throughout New York City has proved to be no exception. Today, nearly a year later, the clean-up of what Sandy left behind is still quite evident.  During the days immediately after the hurricane, and the months of rebuilding after the fact, companies and individuals alike worked together to help.  A major necessity after a disaster, like Hurricane Sandy, is portable toilets and portable sinks. CALLAHEAD is the largest porta potty rental company in New York, who was there and still is today working to help in this rebuilding process.  Even though CALLAHEAD was severely affected by the storms destruction, both their business and many employees lost their homes, the CALLAHEAD’s team managed to stay dedicated to the day-to-day operations to assist their customers who needed them with their post-Sandy cleanup efforts.
