Where the Septic Tank Waste Goes

After pumping of septic tanks waste is hauled to a sewage treatment plant where it is then processed by separating all non bio degradable materials and then processing and purifying the remaining waste through the sewage treatment plant for a fee that is already included in the cost of your cleaning.  Although some pumping companies are still able to land apply waste at a lesser cost, it is starting to become harder to do as more development of our area increases, therefore, forcing our company to use authorized dumping facilities at a greater cost.
