Torching of Portable Toilets at Airport Is Tied to Foul Odor

<i> Associated Press</i>

Portable potties at the construction site at Denver International Airport smell so much that someone has been setting them on fire.

Five have been burned in the last month, said Bob Gomez, a supervisor with Waste Management, which rents them.

One of two burned Monday bore a graffiti warning: “If you don’t fix the toilet paper dispenser, I’ll burn down another one. Signed, The Flame Man.”

Last week, a similar message on a charred toilet warned officials to “keep the toilets clean or they’ll get burned.”


The toilets, worth about $400, are rented from different companies and cleaned one to three times a week, depending on what the contractor has paid for, Gomez said.
