2020 Septic tank sludge draining service

The draining of septic tanks for 2020 will be emptied starting on July 8th on the SOUTH side of the City.

Due to the situation of COVID-19, the following measures are taken to protect the health of citizens and that of workers and to comply with government instructions:

• No door hanger will be left to the citizen; to indicate that a drain has been carried out, the employee will make an X on each cover with chalk;
• It is forbidden for any citizen to approach the employee who will empty the septic system;
• The employee who will perform the emptying will be provided with gloves and disinfectant;
• At the end of each working day, the truck and the equipment will be adequately disinfected, both indoors and outdoors.

These guidelines will remain in effect until the risk of spread is completely eliminated.

Citizens can prepare by consulting the leaflet of the Septic Tank Emptying Service 2020.
