Septage Processing

In some regions of the United States, septage haulers can be charged extremely high processing fees when they discharge material at municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). These WWTPs are often centrally-located near large population centers supported by sewage networks. These locations are often far from septage haulers’ customers in rural areas leading to high transportation costs. Due to the disturbances that the septage material may pose to the WWTPs processes, haulers are sometimes turned away or charged excessive tipping fees. An increasing amount of WWTPs in the United States are even deciding to stop accepting septage altogether leaving haulers with even higher transportation costs as they are forced to find another, often distant treatment plant that is willing to accept their material.

Each Varcor regional facility will be similar in size and process to gas stations. Pre-registered, contracted septage haulers can access these strategically located sites 24/7. Upon entry, haulers can then empty their septic trucks for processing and would be charged an inexpensive processing fee (or tipping fee) on a per gallon basis. With these sites, septic haulers will benefit from competitive tipping fees, increased reliability of processing service, and reduced transportation costs.
