facility for the elimination of human waste that existed before the arrival of indoor plumbing which was

books/portable-toilet ) In other words, a portable toilet is another form of this outhouse which is meant
to more convenient, portable and efficient. A portable toilet is not connected to any external holes on
the ground or to a septic tank nor is it connected to any plumbing mechanism that leads to a sewage
treatment plant. Since portability is one the main characteristics of the these toilets, units are designed
so that it could be carried by an individual alone, however some variations require heavy lifting
equipments like cranes or trucks for their transport. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_toilet )
