How much does a cesspit cost to empty?

A cesspit is a waste management system used to collect wastewater from properties that are not connected to the main sewer system. If you have a cesspit installed, you should be aware that it needs to be emptied regularly to avoid overflowing and potential damage to your property.

But how much does it cost to empty a cesspit? The cost can vary depending on different factors, such as the size of the tank and the amount of waste produced. In this article, we’ll provide you with an estimate of cesspit emptying costs, based on tank size:

  • 1000 gallons / 4500 litres: £140 – £180 per empty
  • 2000 gallons / 9000 litres: £190 – £220 per empty
  • 3000 gallons / 13500 litres: £280 – £330 per empty
  • 4000 gallons / 18000 litres: £380 – £440 per empty

The frequency of cesspit emptying also depends on tank size and household size. Generally, a cesspit needs to be emptied 1 to 10 times per year, often more frequently.
