As Campgrounds Begin to Open in Michigan Turner is Providing Post-COVID Peace of Mind

LAKE ORION, Mich. – June 25, 2020 – As the State of Michigan begins to allow the opening of its city, county, state and private parks and camping facilities, the biggest question people are asking post-COVID is “how safe are the bathroom facilities at these parks and campgrounds?”

While Turner Sanitation can’t answer that question for all re-opening parks and campgrounds, it CAN answer that question for those facilities using Turner portable facilities and sanitation services.  That answer is a resounding “very safe and very clean!”

Most RV parks, campgrounds and government-sponsored parks have the need for outdoor facilities for RV and boat owners, as well as hikers and anyone using a facility for one day or for weeks. It’s the only option available for people who use them, outside of RV holding tanks.  But with everyone concerned about the cleanliness of outdoor bathroom facilities, especially now in the midst of our COVID crisis, Turner Sanitation is going the extra mile for its customers.

“We have always cleaned portable facilities more than has been previously required, but we’ve doubled down on our efforts to make sure we provide the very cleanest options for our clients,” said Turner Sanitation owner Darin Gross. “We are extremely familiar with the state laws on bathroom cleanliness, but we will be making more frequent visits to clean and sanitize facilities to put our clients and the public at ease.”

Many parks and RV parks are re-opening on a staggered basis because of the work that’s needed to bring its facilities up to a post-COVID level.  Cleaner bathrooms will also encourage people to come back to the parks and campgrounds, with some potential visitors concerned about the continued spreading of COVID. But for weeks now, Turner Sanitation has been sanitizing park and RV facilities enabling them to open quicker and give visitors peace of mind.  “Our services have really put RV Park owners and those running government parks more at ease,” said Gross. “If the openings aren’t done properly and not meeting state guidelines, they can be heavily fined.  That’s where we come in.”

Turner has been providing portable bathroom facilities in Michigan and has been called upon to clean RV park and campground facilities for more than 40 years.   To inquire about how you can benefit from Turner Sanitation’s experience, call 248-693-0998 or go to TunerSanitationLO.com.

Turner Sanitation Services Become Much in Demand Coming Out of COVID-19

Washing Stations, Septic Services a Priority for Homes and Businesses Entering Michigan’s New Normal

LAKE ORION, Mich. – May 21, 2020 – As Michigan envisions a day soon when coming out of the COVID-19 crisis means seeking normal in a climate that is anything but, there will be a number of services and businesses in very high demand. But the crisis has thrust to the forefront some companies, like Turner Sanitation, whose role in our communities have been enhanced by the needs we’ll have in Michigan’s new normal.

“Sanitation is going to be a very big thing coming out of this. I think this state is going to be asking not only how are we going to stay clean but will allow us to come up with new protocols,” said Turner Sanitation owner and entrepreneur Darin Gross, who purchased the family-owned company in January. “What we offer now is EPA environmentally-and solutions on a very high level.”

Two of the demands coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic has already meant Turner Sanitation is trying to fast track new hand washing stations, because the entirety of Turner’s inventory has been rented by Amazon in Shelby Township.

Another of Turner’s offerings, septic services, are already seeing a large increase in home visits after months of families being home together during the state’s stay-at-home order. The company has made numerous emergency service visits to fix potentially limit-pushing home septic tanks, which were not built for the amount of use they’ve seen.

The company’s best known offering, portable restrooms, is also expected to see increased demand because of Turner Sanitation’s dedication to their cleanliness. “I heard a lot of companies don’t clean enough. That’s certainly not our issue,” said Gross. “I can definitely see, however, an increase in how many times per week we will be replenishing hand washing liquid and cleaning the facilities, probably two or three times more than we have in the past.” As for reluctance by some to use portable facilities post-COVID-19, Gross says when it omes to locations Turner places its restrooms, people don’t really have a choice such at places like outdoor events, festivals and recreational parks.

“We’re a company with a great reputation and have employees who have been here for more than 20 years,” said Gross. “I’m very proud to have the quality of people here at Turner and am confident we will continue to provide the high quality services needed by our community.”
