Cesspool and septic tank emptying service

We empty waste from domestic and business properties located in areas of the Borough that are not served by a public sewer. 

Our friendly tanker operator, Jim, gives a professional service. 

We can collect up to 10,000 litres per emptying and we charge according to the strength of the waste and payment type. Severn Trent Water will determine how strong your waste is. Your first emptying will be charged as standard strength and is then changed if Severn Trent classify it as weak.

There are two ways to pay.

Direct debit service

Set up a direct debit for a minimum of one emptying per year and:

  • Save money
  • Spread payments over 12 months
  • Save time - your waste will be collected without you having to request it

Standard strength waste - £202.50 (per load)
Weak strength waste - £106.00 (per load)

Any extra emptyings will be charged at your usual rate.

'Pay as you go' service 

Our pay as you go service is £220.50 (per load) regardless of strength. Your waste will be collected within 10 working days. 

Important information

The vehicle which will visit the property has a laden weight of 16 tonnes. You should ensure that surfaces the vehicle will drive over or stand on are suitable for this heavyweight. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a service if the vehicle needs to travel over unpaved areas.
