Truck-Hauled Septage Waste
Spotsylvania County's Massaponax Wastewater Treatment Facility accepts truck-hauled septage waste from properties in Spotsylvania County and the City of Fredericksburg. We accept:
- Grease Trap Waste
- Vegetable Oil Waste
- Portable Toilet Waste
- Septic Tank Waste
To participate in this program, authorization is required.
To gain authorization for septage disposal, haulers must complete and submit the Septage Hauler Registration Form. After the form is reviewed and accepted, the hauler will receive a letter of authorization.
In accordance with Section 22-366 of the County's Municipal Code, only a person having a physical residence in the County, or a firm or corporation having a place of business in the County, that is served by a private septic tank or sewage system is an "eligible user". Provided the Septage Hauler's user meets one of these requirements, the Septage Hauler may be authorized to use the Massaponax facility for septage disposal. Code sections 22-361 and 22-365 define General Discharge Prohibitions and the Specific Pollutant Limitations. Septage Haulers must comply with these sections as random testing of received waste is conducted regularly to determine compliance.
At the Receiving Station
Upon arrival at the Massaponax facility, the pump truck driver will be required to supply a manifest for each waste tank, or tanks, that was pumped and the contents contained on the vehicle. Once the Wastewater Facility Operator receives the manifest, the pump truck driver will be allowed to dispose of the truck contents at the designated Septage Receiving Station. Upon completion of unloading, the Receiving Station will provide a receipt for the total gallons unloaded. The Septage Hauler will be billed for septage disposal on a monthly basis.
