Vacuum Service Philosophy
We believe in protecting the health of our community. That’s why we only use legitimate waste treatment facilities to dispose of septic and grease waste. It costs a little more to do things right, but that is how we do business.

Why is pricing based on county?
We are based in Harrison County. The price difference accounts for increased travel time.
What is a septic disposal fee?
For environmental and legal reasons, we use sewage treatment facilities to dispose of the contents of septic tanks.
Sewage treatment facilities require payment from us based on how many gallons of sewage we deliver.
What is a non-biodegradable disposal fee?
A non-biodegradable is any item that was flushed down the toilet that was not human waste or toilet paper. The most common items are baby wipes, feminine care products, and used cigarettes.
Sewage treatment facilities do not accept any non-biodegradable items into their system, because non-biodegradable items can never become environmentally-safe water.
That means we must separate all non-biodegradable items from our truck's tank before the treatment facility will accept our delivery. The separation process is labor intensive, and is performed manually.
Can I save money by digging?
Probably! If your septic tank lid is covered by grass and dirt, you can save money by uncovering the lid. Just remove the top layer of grass and dirt to reveal the tank lid.
No need to open the lid.
Can you repair my broken septic tank?
We can replace a broken lid. Call for pricing.
We do not do any other kind of septic tank repair. We do not install new septic tanks.
