In the Pargas archipelago’s Nagu, Korpo, and Houtskär main islands, LSJH takes care of septic tank and cesspool sludge transport as well as waste collection. Sludge tanks are emptied by companies invited to tender by LSJH: Kaivuu & Kuljetus Saarinen Oy in Nagu, Eerola-Yhtiöt Oy in Korpo, and Lindqvist Trans in Houtskär.
LSJH organises sludge-tank emptying on the Pargas archipelago main islands: Nagu, Korpo and Houtskär. In other areas, property users order collection from a company of their choice.
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 two weeks 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 on weekdays will be applied.
Order sludge-tank emptying from our customer service by phone at 0200 47470 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
