Sludge Removal

Sludge Removal

Those who are not connected to a municipal sewerage network have some form of sludge separator (also called septic tank) which must be emptied regularly for the sewerage system to function. Our owner municipalities have chosen to leave the responsibility for emptying private septic tanks to ReMidt.

ReMidt ​​has the exclusive right to collect and treat sludge from sludge separators, sealed tanks, mini-purification plants, etc.

  • Ordinary emptying, extra emptying (emergency emptying) and flushing are now managed and invoiced from ReMidt ​​IKS.
  • The fee for sludge will come on the same invoice as the ordinary refuse fee, not from the municipality.
  • If you have a question about sludge, please contact ReMidt ​​IKS.

Please contact the municipality for:
  • change in the emission permit, e.g. when replacing or upgrading the tank / plant
  • apply for exemption from sludge emptying
  • change of emptying frequency, e.g. change from holiday home to permanent residence

The municipality is still a pollution authority and this cannot be delegated. Therefore, they must decide on these questions.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is my septic tank still full right after you empty?

A sludge tank is just as full when we finish the job as when we arrived. There is a so-called "local dewatering". That is, we take the solid with us and return the "water" to the tank. Empty tank is completely emptied.

What are the timber routines for wastewater treatment plants?

There are many different types of treatment plants. They have different emptying procedures. Instructions should be available at the facility.

What is a sludge separator?

Those who are not connected to a municipal sewage network have some form of sludge separator (also called septic tank). This must be emptied at regular intervals for the drainage system to function.

Calculation of the amount for sludge emptying is not correct, why is the sum as high as the entire annual fee when the invoice is for the quarter?

Under the heading «Annual leave. per unit »is the unit price per m3. If your tank is 4m3, the unit price is multiplied by 4, then divided by the number of quarters in the sum.
Example: ($ 227,25 * 4m3 = $ 909. $ 909/4 quarter = $ 227,5).
The same goes for the bill for leisure renovation, but the unit price is multiplied by the number of m3 and then divided in two, since we bill leisure time only twice a year.
