Septage Haulers

A septage hauler conducts transportation of septage and may require a license with ADEQ. Septage includes sewage or human waste that is removed from septic tanks or other onsite wastewater treatment facilities. These regulations help protect public health and safety by ensuring that these types of waste are managed and disposed of properly.

It applies to septage hauler vehicles that have a capacity of at least 750 gallons. The vehicle must be equipped with a leak-proof and fly-tight container.
