What is it?

Septic Savers is a Howard County program that aims to promote proper septic maintenance. We offer a $100 reimbursement to residents who pump their septic tanks every 3-5 years. The Howard County Health Department recommends having your tank pumped every 3 years.

We have limited funds available and reimbursements are offered on a first come, first served basisYou may only apply if you have already pumped your tank with a licensed hauler.  You are only eligible to apply once every three years (from the date of the pump that was last reimbursed).  We do not recommend or endorse any of the haulers on this list; however, these are the ONLY companies legally able to haul waste in Howard County. Please do research to determine if a hauler and their methods are for you and be sure they are on our licensed hauler list. If you have difficulty completing the online application or would like to have an application mailed to you, please email
