In Raisio, Rusko, Masku, Mynämäki and Nousiainen, LSJH takes care of septic tank and cesspool sludge transport. Sludge tanks are emptied by company invited to tender by LSJH: Lassila & Tikanoja (L&T).

Sludge-tank emptying at regular intervals or by order

Permanent homes and holiday homes (with flush toilets): Septic tanks and small sewage treatment plants must be emptied at least once a year. Holiday homes with only a dry toilet: Septic tanks must be emptied at least once every two years. If a sludge tank must be emptied earlier than planned, the emptying must be ordered well in advance from our customer service.

Cesspools can be emptied at regular intervals or by the customer’s order. Changes must be agreed upon with our customer service.

How to arrange emptying

Make an appointment for emptying at least 5 weekdays in advance. This way, routes can be planned in time and sludge tanks emptied systematically.

If emptying is ordered separately so that the sludge tank must be emptied on the same day, a transportation fee for express emptying will be applied.

Order sludge-tank emptying from our customer service by phone at 0200 47470 or by email at liete@lsjh.fi.

How to cancel emptying

If not enough sludge for collection has accumulated in your septic tank, the current year’s emptying can be cancelled by contacting our customer service by phone at 0200 47470 or by email at liete@lsjh.fi.
